Biden Advised to Not Kill Bin Laden to Give Obama “Space”

Whatever. His story on this has changed so many times that who knows what the truth is?

“In my view,” Biden told CNN, “there was one option there that was remaining: you could have done one more very low flight … spying down on the site” – a compound in Abbottabad – “to determine whether this was Bin Laden, because again, there was no certainty.

“ … And so I looked around the table, I said, ‘I didn’t think we had this many economists in the room. On the one hand, the other hand.’ I said, ‘Mr President,’ to give him space, I said, ‘I think you should wait.’ And do one more pass.’ Knowing that if you made the lower pass, they might observe it and he’d flee.”

Again echoing Obama, Biden said he and the president had a subsequent private discussion in which he advised the president to follow his instinct.

    who knows what the truth is?

    Biden doesn’t.  He can’t remember it.

    Biden was channeling his inner Ted Kennedy.

  3. Kevin Scheunemann

    Biden just is not in favor of eliminating vile terrorists.

    Awful. Just awful.

    This alone should have been disqualifying for president.

    “who knows what the truth is?”

    After supporting trump for 4 years, why would you folks care?  The dreaded drip, drip, drip of irony…..

    >The dreaded drip, drip, drip of irony…..

    More like the dreaded drip drip of your’s and Senile Joe’s colostomy bags

    Everyone was paying the bastard for influence. Maybe the bin Laden family still owed Joe a payment or two.

    So, basically, Babblin’ Joe once again plagiarizes. This time from that “articulate, clean” black guy’s just published book.

    The man has never had an original thought.

    The main takeaway, of course, is that Babblin’ Joe was dead wrong. Again.

    Biden was wrong…  Look, John Kerry was DEAD WRONG.



    >“There will be no separate peace between Israel and the Arab world. I want to make that very clear to all of you,” Mr. Kerry said. “I’ve heard several prominent politicians in Israel sometimes saying, well, the Arab world’s in a different place now, and we just have to reach out to them and we can work some things with the Arab world, and we’ll deal with the Palestinians. No. No, no and no.”
    >He repeated: “There will be no advance and separate peace with the Arab world without the Palestinian process and Palestinian peace. Everybody needs to understand that. That is a hard reality.”

    Great, are we going to have 4 years of the same failure from 08-16?
