Palin church arson update

The latest from Alaska:

Whoever torched Gov. Sarah Palin’s home church tried to start fires in several places around the building, the federal agency assisting in the investigation said today.
Accelerants were found in multiple locations on the outside of Wasilla Bible Church, including around entrances and exits, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

No word on motive:

Palin’s ties to the church have sparked widespread speculation about whether the person who lit the fire was motivated by that connection. However, Central Mat-Su Fire Department Chief James Steele said that idea remains in the realm of pure speculation.
“At this point, there is no information that we have that even points in that direction,” he said.

Because there could be any number of motives for such a crime, any speculation is ill-advised. Certainly no conservative should suggest a political motive at this point because — if such speculation eventually proves unjustified — the Left will then have a field day claiming that this demonstrates right-wing paranoia. Obviously, if BATFE is involved, the feds are taking this seriously, so be content to let the investigation run its course.
