But, the more I though about the more I couldn’t let Joe off so easy. Because not only was his smirking, laughing, and gesticulating unprofessional and immature, he sat there and lied to the American people, and only talk radio is calling him on it.
Let’s start with this quote after the moderator asked about the killing of Chris Stephens in Libya and Paul Ryan pointing out that the embassy had inadequate (to say the least) security.
“Well, we weren’t told they wanted more security there. We did not know they wanted more security again.” ---Joe Biden
First, they need to be told that on the anniversary of 9-11, the first anniversary of 9-11 after the killing of Bin Laden, a fact Obama trumpets every time foreign policy is brought up, in a city with known Al Qaeda activity, that beefed up security is needed? Who shows these mental giants where the bathrooms are at? Perhaps, instead of going on Letterman or The View Obama should attend the security briefings that he routinely ignores.
But, it doesn’t stop at incompetence. The very day before the Vice Presidential debates a congressional hearing was conducted on the actions in Benghazi and Eric Nordstrom, the former chief security officer for the American Embassy in Libya said that;
“his request to extend the deployment of an American military team was thwarted by the State Department’s Department of Diplomatic Security.”
The White House claims it wouldn’t have done any good. I so trust their judgment on this matter over the guy in charge of keeping those American’s safe.

Biden is conceding that Iran is going to get to the point of having the fissionable material. This is a complete failure of the Obama administration. Obama has talked
