Terrorists' Magazine Urging Wildfires in Montana

Terrorists' Magazine Urging Wildfires in Montana

Leave it to an international terrorist network to support irreversibly harming the American landscape, but you would expect that message to come from a grainy videotape, or a leaked audio recording. Magazine articles -- their own, at that -- are probably way down the list.

Nevertheless, al-Qaeda's marketing team behind the magazine Inspire is urging jihadists to strike fear into the hearts of the American people by setting wildfires in Montana.

According to the (Missoula, Mont.) Missoulian, the latest issue of al-Qaeda's English-speaking magazine writes, "It is difficult to choose a better place other than in the valleys of Montana where the population increases rapidly."


Of course, local law enforcement is taking the threat seriously.


"We are an equal-opportunity law enforcement agency," said Missoula County Sheriff's Detective Jason Johnson. "We don't care who it is. If they do anything to try to harm Missoula County citizens, we're gonna stop 'em."

In the newest issue of Inspire, readers are instructed on how to build an ember bomb and detonate it in the Montana hillsides, where it states there are more houses than cities. The magazine also details materials needed for detonation, and instructions on how to do so.

Obviously, the feds are already on top of it.

"The U.S. Department of Agriculture, including the U.S Forest Service, works closely with its partners within the intelligence community, including both the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice on any terrorist threats, including threats of this nature," said Forest Service spokesman Brandan Schulze. "We are asking Forest Service employees, law enforcement and the general public to continue to be vigilant for any signs of wildfires, and to report unusual circumstances or situations that seem out of the ordinary for outdoor recreation on all public lands."
