NY Times On Greece's Possibly Terrorist-Driven Fires: All The News That's Fit To Print

Forty-four fires in Greece, started by arsonists - time-coordinated incendiary devices triggered by cell phones - and this is all the New York Times has to say today:

The government, seeking to deflect criticism, has meantime blamed arson, reportedly arresting seven people for setting various fires, which have flared around the nation, most here on the Peloponnese peninsula and on Evia island north of Athens. Adding to conspiracy theories blasted over an alarmist Greek news media — including the possibility that the fires were started as a hostile act from abroad — a Greek prosecutor on Monday ordered an investigation into whether the fires might be prosecuted under the nation’s antiterrorism laws.
