lass=”” >This year, devastating wildfires have already blackened nearly 2 million acres across the United States. That’s a 360% increase over the same period last year.
Four years ago, former NSA official William Scott briefed the American Center for Democracy that terrorists were using fire as a tactical weapon of war.
Scott explained that documents captured during the raid that ended the life of Osama bin Laden yielded a detailed campaign for starting fires throughout the American West.
This is something to keep in mind as we roll into the wildfire season.
I’m still reporting from Washington. Good day.
