Clinton: Gitmo Horror Could Spark Muslim Brutality — Satire By Scott Ott

Former President Bill Clinton today said that if the scandal-plagued terrorist detention facility at Guantánamo Bay[1] isn’t “cleaned up or closed down” then insurgents in Iraq may resort to killing Iraqis, and could even begin attacking U.S. troops.

“If the United States gets a reputation in the Muslim world of mistreating terrorist prisoners,” said Mr. Clinton, “It could unleash what sociologists call ‘the righteous brutality[2] of the oppressed’ among the normally-peaceful followers of Islam.”

The former president said the backlash could include, “bombings[3], kidnappings[4] and even beheadings. That’s the kind of future we may face unless we atone for the sins of Gitmo.”
