Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, now a candidate for the Democratic Party nomination in the race for the White House, disclosed that the recent tension with Iran involving the forced detention of American sailors was caused by the release of a derogatory video last week.
"Once again, irresponsible insults by a film maker have resulted in American lives being placed in jeopardy," stated Clinton Spokesperson Aiden Abet. "In direct response to the insults made in this 'film'--in reality nothing more than a hate crime on celluloid--the Iranian Republican Guard spontaneously rose up to avenge the slights made against the reputation of one of the great leaders of history."
Secretary Clinton first broke the bombshell revelation during Sunday night's Democratic Candidate Debate, but due to lack of viewership issued a follow-up press release Monday morning. In it, the candidate and former First Lady vowed to track down the producers of the slanderous film production and hold them accountable for the damage they had done to World Peace and Middle Eastern Stability with their reckless slander of a great and revered world leader.
"We’ve seen rage and vitriol directed at American sailors over an awful film that I had nothing to do with. It is hard for the American people to make sense of that because it is senseless, and it is totally unacceptable."
Former Senator Clinton vowed that if she were elected, she would "make sure that the person who made that film was arrested and prosecuted."
The Film, entitled "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi," hit theaters on January 15.
