How about this, Vice President Joe Biden busts loose and admits ISIS has been armed by our allies, right under our noses, in plain view?
At Harvard’s John F. Kennedy Forum last week Biden talked openly about the part US allies in the Middle East played in empowering ISIS to overthrow Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad, and in so doing creating the current monster. This report from Global Research outlines the details of what has to be the most amazing gaff by a politician in decades. Biden, for all intents, blows the whistle on the Obama administration, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
But what’s more concerning, more dangerous, is the fact the administration has not been called onto the carpet over this and other foreign policy and meddling. Given the revelations over the past couple of years, it’s almost as if the American public could care less what happens, or what position the current administration puts our country in in any regard. The US has lost a great deal of credibility and influence on account of NSA spying, meddling in Ukraine and now Hong Kong, and sanctions on Russia that have hurt more than helped the European situation.
Patrick Martin of Global Research calls the revelation the latest stain on this administration, a “testament to the degeneracy of the American political system.” And he’s spot on. Even the Obama owned mainstream is on Biden’s case, albeit letting him off the hook as just some idiotic bigmouth. The Washington Post fails to amplify the obvious story, but instead alludes only to Biden’s lost chances at a Presidential bid in 2016! And right there is the problem America has, a candidacy is more important than world peace or world war.
The underlying story of a government with strategies and concerns far off the track from what Americans want or need, this is our major concern. As presidents go, we could elect Mr. Bean and do as well as funding terror, watching it turn on us, then breaking our bank bombing it. America is turned upside down, and most Americans are asking the pharmacist for a headache pill.
If you think for a moment we’re not in the soup reality wise, New Day host Chris Cuomo said he admires Biden even still, and get this, for his candor. So if Biden admitted Obama is the anti-Christ, Cuomo and half of America would be okay with it, as long as he was stupid enough to spill the beans? Wow. Let me say that again, Wow.
