Human Rights Report Makes McClellan Say Something Really Funny

February 16, 2006

Responding to a UN report calling for an end to the Guantanamo detention camp, the White House
“suggested the investigators had based their conclusions on disinformation deliberately spread by terror groups.”
The report provoked White House spokesman, Scott McClellan, into an inspired utterance that is truly the funniest thing I’ve read today: “We know that Al-Qaeda detainees are trained in trying to disseminate false allegations.” Right. The UN human rights investigators weren’t allowed to interview detainees for the report for their own good, because they’re overly susceptible to false allegations of torture and abuse.

    There’s the additional twist that “many scores, and perhaps hundreds” of the detainees at Gitmo aren’t even terrorists in the first place. But rather “innocent, wrongly seized noncombatants with no intention of joining the Qaeda campaign to murder Americans.”

    Perhaps they didn’t join the murder campaign, but only joined up for the campaign to “disseminate false allegations.”

    If only we could somehow train our government officials to dissemble and disseminate false allegations as effectively as the terrorists!

    Further madness: they based a good deal of their WMD case against Iraq upon information provided by these same “dishonest” detainees. If we had a media with any courage or sense of journalistic responsibility these contradictions would have been made clear YEARS AGO!

    Yes, I hear they have their own printing press in their and are disseminating on a scale never before seen at a terrorist detention center. I believe they won the Terrorist Detention Center “Disseminator of the Year” award. And all this while on a hunger strike and having tubes shoved down their throats.

    Terrorists are very proficient at multi-tasking.
