FBI: al-Qaeda detainee spoke of fire plot; An al-Qaeda terrorist now in detention had talked of masterminding a plot to set a series of devastating forest fires around the western United States

PHOENIX (AP) — The FBI alerted law enforcement agencies last month that an al-Qaeda terrorist now in detention had talked of masterminding a plot to set a series of devastating forest fires around the western United States.

Rose Davis, a spokeswoman for the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, told The Associated Press that officials there took note of the warning but didn’t see a need to act further on it.

The contents of the June 25 memo from the FBI’s Denver office were reported Friday by The Arizona Republic. Davis declined to share a copy of the memo and an FBI spokeswoman in Denver didn’t immediately return a telephone call.

The Republic reported that the detainee, who was not identified, said the plan involved three or four people setting wildfires using timed devices in Colorado, Montana, Utah and Wyoming that would detonate in forests and grasslands after the operatives had left the country.

The memo noted that investigators couldn’t determine whether the detainee was telling the truth.

The newspaper said many forest law enforcement officers it contacted had no idea the warning had been issued.

  1. That’s not from the AP, it’s from Fox News, and it’s false.

    The Arizona Republic article they claim to be citing is from 4 YEARS ago.

    Fox News just duped the whole country, you people are swallowing it, and we are on our way to destruction.

  2. Acctually this particular article was from AP. The day after this article was posted Fox had a whole lineup of articles on the wildfires linked to terrorism. I posted the Fox articles because of this particular Article, and the possibility of these fires being terrorist related. In any event I like to hear the oppinions of the American public on situations such as this.

    Thanks And God Bless
