Racicot Flashback

From 2000:

Montana Gov. Marc Racicot has taken it a step farther and officially blamed Clinton administration policy for causing this summer's conflagrations. "On their watch, they have not made forest health a priority," Racicot recently said on ABC's "This Week." Racicot claimed that although fire is a natural process in western forests, fire management and resulting fuel buildup has created, "a situation that is unnatural," and thus, this summer's fires.
