At The Washington Post, Glenn Kessler reports on a discrepancy in remarks recently from Joe Biden to Fox News’s Peter Doocy. Kessler notes that Biden has trouble keeping his story straight on what was perhaps the Obama administration’s biggest foreign policy win. He quotes the Fox News interview:
FOX NEWS’S PETER DOOCY: “And to follow your remarks earlier, 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?”
FORMER VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: “Well we did, and the guy’s name was Osama bin Laden.”
DOOCY: “And didn’t you tell President Obama ‘don’t go’ after bin Laden that day?”
BIDEN: “No, I didn’t. I didn’t.”
