I stood on the overlook and saw on the horizon to the West a darkened sky at midday.  It was from what has been dubbed the Clover fire.  In California every year there are fires.  Some caused by nature, some by careless acts, some by accidents.  But this year has been an extraordinary year for fires in California and many other states.

One explanation that hasn’t been brought up is what I’ve suspected since September 11, 2001, and that is arson by terrorists.  Finally, the national media is beginning to go public with such suspicions that some organizations like WND and CBN have long held.

As WND reported in July, a senior al-Qaida detainee told interrogators he planned to spark multiple, catastrophic wildfires simultaneously in Colorado, Montana, Utah and Wyoming in order to strike a blow to the United States economy.

This year, hundreds of homes have been destroyed by fire, (such as the “Black Forest” fire in Colorado that destroyed 509 homes) .  The cause of that fire at this writing is undetermined but many suspect the fire was set intentionally.


William Scott, a former National Security Agency official and Aviation Week editor explained that after U.S. Navy SEALs killed al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden, they “captured a treasure trove of material that provided some unprecedented insight into the al-Qaida plans.  And one of those was a detailed campaign for starting fires throughout the [American] West.”

“U.S. officials have pretty much determined that some of the fires that burned in California [in 2011] were ignited by al-Qaida operatives,” Scott said.
