Accelerant used on Gov. Palin's Church

Investigators from the ATF are saying an accelerant was used at various spots around the church that Governor Palin attends. What was not originally reported was that there was a small group, including two children, inside the church when the blaze was set.

From the AP, via
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - An accelerant was poured around the exterior of Gov. Sarah Palin's church before fire heavily damaged the building, federal investigators said Monday.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said the accelerant was poured at several locations around the church, including entrances.

Lab tests will determine the type of substance involved. Possibilities include gasoline, kerosene, diesel fuel or even lamp oil, Agent Nick Starcevic said.

The blaze was set Friday night at the main entrance of the Wasilla Bible Church while a small group, including two children, were inside. No one was injured. Fire authorities were called to the scene at 9:40 p.m., unusually early for many arson fires, Starcevic said.

"It's kind of odd to do in the evening hours," he said. "I can tell you that most of the arson fires I've worked on are late nighttime, usually when no one is there." read more...

If this wasn't an attempt on somebody's life, then Ron Gettelfinger, President of the UAW, will be voting Republican in 2010.

Nevertheless, where is the indignation over this "hate-crime?" Is it okay because these are supposed Right-Wing Zealots? My what a wonderful double-standard the world has adopted these days.

Beyond the political ramifications, these maniacs tried killing children. The fact is kids don't care about politics, religion, or race. So, why were they being targeted and why isn't anyone talking about that?
