This is not good news:
Officials say a fire at a mosque frequented by the Somali-born teenager charged with plotting to blow up a Portland Christmas tree lighting ceremony was arson.
CBS Affiliate KVAL reports the fire occurred at the Salman Al-Farisi Islamic Center early Sunday morning.
The fire was discovered by a police sergeant patrolling in the area at approximately 2:15 a.m. Sunday. The flames were quickly knocked down by arriving firefighters.
Recall that the only reason the FBI was on to the bomber was that someone gave them a tip. Could that someone be a member of his mosque. Yes. Will they be as likely to help out next time? Not after this.
