McCain May Have Been Right On Arizona Fires


John McCain, who has few fans in grassroots conservatism and even fewer in the MSM, was excoriated in the media over his recent remarks that the Arizona wildfires were started by illegal immigrants.

Jon Stewart, of course, mocked McCain on his show.

Now it looks as though these outlets may be apologizing.

Massive wildfires in eastern Arizona that have scorched 250,000 acres were probably started by Mexican drug traffickers or human smugglers, an Arizona sheriff told Fox News on Wednesday.


“The bottom line is, there was nobody in the park [who] would’ve been there legally,” Dever said. “There were no vehicles, no nothing. It’s a high-intensity drug trafficking and human smuggling area. We have scouts that hang out there all the time. They light signal fires, they light warming fires because it gets cold at night … There is nothing to indicate that there was any other cause. And the highest probability — not possibility — is that this is how this fire started.”
