The real concern here is that Biden doesn’t seem to have any real conviction about what to do in that scenario. This guy wants to be Commander in Chief.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has appeared to contradict his own story regarding his role in overseeing the U.S. mission to kill Osama bin Laden.
Biden was on the campaign trail in Iowa when he changed his story about the 2011 Navy SEAL mission that resulted in bin Laden’s death in a conversation with a Fox News reporter.
‘As commander in chief, if you were ever handed a piece of intelligence that said you could stop an imminent attack on Americans — but you have to use an airstrike to take out a terrorist leader — would you pull the trigger?’ the reporter asked Biden.
‘Well we did – the guy’s name was Osama bin Laden,’ replied Biden, who was vice president when bin Laden was killed.
Didn’t you tell President Obama not to go after bin Laden that day?’ the reporter asked.
‘No, I didn’t,’ Biden said.
That is in an apparent contradiction to a story Biden told almost eight years ago during a retreat in Maryland for congressional Democrats, where he described a tense 2011 strategy session ahead of the raid.
‘Mr. President, my suggestion is, don’t go – we have to do two more things to see if he’s there,’ Biden of the strategy session at the 2012 retreat.
Biden’s campaign did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com when asked about the apparent contradiction.
