Panetta: Trump’s ‘Playing with Fire’ with Anti-Muslim Tweets
PANETTA: “Wolf, I think the president of the United States is playing with fire. He may not know it but he’s playing with fire. Anytime you have those kinds of anti-Muslim videos and now he’s part of spreading that video around the world, there is a danger that you can create disruptions abroad and demonstrations at U.S. Embassies and other embassies and really jeopardize lives. We went through this. There were moments when I was there where we had anti-Muslim videos involving the burning of the Koran and, as a result of the fact that that was being distributed, we were very concerned about potential demonstrations that would take place at a number of embassies and we had to issue warnings to those embassies to be on alert. This is a dangerous game to play and the president, frankly, ought to know better.
