UAE Wants Clarification From Biden

Good ol’ Uncle Joe. In his effort to deflect blame from the Obama Administration, he manages to offend our allies. If he keeps this up, he’ll outpace John Kerry for foreign policy gaffes.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The United Arab Emirates said Sunday it wants “a formal clarification” of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s recent comments that America’s allies in the Middle East sent weapons and cash to extremists fighting in Syria.

Biden already apologized to Turkey over his comments, made Thursday during a question-and-answer session at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Biden said that “our biggest problem is our allies” who are engaged in a proxy Sunni-Shiite war against Syrian President Bashar Assad. He specifically named Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

    Getting clarification from Biden on anything will make it 10 times worse.

    Just smile and nod Joe.
