Biden’s Changing Story

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 when asked about the apparent contradiction.

    The left’s reaction has been insane and treasonous!

    We all celebrated when Bin Laden was destroyed by Obama. Conservatives celebrated and gave Obama credit. I cheered Obama for having balls to do it!

    This guy Iran general was worse than Bin Laden and Democrats line up to support terrorists! Biden now wants to deny credit for Bin Laden takedown? Insane.

    Liberal have decided to side with terrorist evil and it is a disgusting betrayal of America.

    I kinda feel sorry for that poor old bastard.  He actually thinks he can win this thing using the Very Best Rhetoric of the 1980’s.

    Old Joe has trouble remembering where he is during campaign stops. Expecting him to remember lies he told eight years ago is unreasonable.

    I am disappointed. He promised no malarkey.

    Kevin, you knew that general’s name before he was killed?

  7. jjf

    Hmm, did anyone know that generals’ name before he was killed?  And yet he was the greatest terrorist mastermind ever!

    I knew of him. I knew he was a bad guy. I did not know just how many American deaths he was responsible for until after Trump did right thing.

    You can say it: “This was a good thing”.

    Or will you be like other treasonous liberals and side with murderous Islamic terrorists against Americans?

    Is the sky black or white in your world, Kevin?

    Depends, do you call evil, good, and good, evil? Then sky is black.

    If good is good and courage exists to denounce evil, then sky is white.
