What Biden Believed in 2008

Biden said in 2008 that, “It is precisely because the consequences of war – intended or otherwise – can be so profound and complicated that our Founding Fathers vested in Congress, not the President, the power to initiate war, except to repel an imminent attack on the United States or its citizens” (emphasis added).

The State Department claimed after the Soleimani killing that the Iranaian leader had been plotting “imminent attacks” on Americans. Biden continues to criticize the Soleimani strike, despite the State Department’s statement about “imminent attacks” squaring with what he believed in 2008.

Biden appeared to flip-flop on his former belief during Tuesday’s Dem debate that an “imminent attack” could be used to bypass Congress.

Obama-Biden Conducted Many Military Actions Without Seeking Congressional Approval

When Biden was Vice President for President Barack Obama’s administration, his administration made multiple military actions without consulting Congress, something CNN moderator Wolf Blitzer noted.

Biden defended their actions by saying that there was “authorization for the use of military force” but said it only gave them permission “to deal with these other issues,” not “to go into Iran.”

“No, there was the authorization for the use of military force that was passed by the United States Congress, House, and Senate and signed by the president,” according to Biden. “That was the authority. Does not give authority to go into Iran. It gave authority to deal with these other issues.”

How slippery is this logic?

Sorry. You can’t have it both ways, Joe.
