Fox News Speculates: al Qaeda Behind California Fires?

Be scared, America! Al Qaeda is everywhere, and they know how to commit arson! They might have—maybe, possibly, this is completely baseless!—set the wildfires in California!

Just part of Fox News' campaign to make sure every American voter is very, very afraid at all times. If they need to fill time during their wildfire coverage, maybe they should report on this. But I'll bet they won't.
