Biden Tries to Take Credit for Bin Laden Raid… But He Opposed It

Joe Biden had another very bizarre appearance on Thursday.

Once again, Biden had several mental freezes during a short period of time.

He also happened to twist some historical facts again, something the GOP jumped all over as soon as the words came out of his mouth.

The Bin Laden Raid

During the campaign and several times during this presidency, Joe Biden has tried to use the Bin Laden raid to bolster his credibility on the fight against terrorism.

Biden has always made it sound as though he was behind the raid and instrumental in carrying it out.

That, however, was not really the case.

The first version of what happened during the discussions on the raid came right from Biden’s own mouth.

Biden stated, “The president, he went around the table with all the senior people, including the chiefs of staff, and he said, ‘I have to make a decision. What is your opinion?’

“He started with the national security adviser, the secretary of state, and he ended with me. Every single person in that room hedged their bet except [CIA Director] Leon Panetta. Leon said, ‘Go.’ Everyone else said, 49, 51.

“He got to me. He said, ‘Joe, what do you think?’ And I said, ‘You know, I didn’t know we had so many economists around the table.’ I said, ‘We owe the man a direct answer. Mr. President, my suggestion is, don’t go. We have to do two more things to see if he’s there.’”

Biden was clearly not 100 percent behind the raid at that point, but that is quite different from the story he tells today…

Interestingly, during a Washington Post fact-check on this subject, they tried to justify Biden’s comments and did so even though other accounts backed up Biden’s hesitancy on this.

The Washington Post reported, “Biden at the time probably did not expect to run again for president. He was clearly trying to make Obama look like a gutsy decision-maker in the face of antsy aides.”

So, now they know what Biden was thinking at the time? They used this thinking to justify a two Pinocchio rating rather than slam Biden with an outright lie.

Read the accounts of the discussion and you will see that Biden wanted nothing to do with that raid at that moment.

He was more worried about political fallout than he was ridding the planet of one of the most dangerous terrorists of our time.

    1. I will never understand how this lying, lunatic, idiot ever got in the White House.
      The thing that really perplexes me is how on God’s green America is this worthless, feckless, braindead, racist idiot is still in our White House.
      There’s so much that is wrong with this picture and, nothing is right.

      1. Saddlebum I couldn’t agree with you more. Biden himself said it was hard for him to make decisions. Pledgerism is Biden’s middle name and now he wants to take credit for other presidents’ work they did. Biden is not running our country he is not a leader at all.

  1. Sad to see his imagination is the strongest thing left in his old, worn-out brain. In his demented mind, he freed the slaves, won WWII single-handedly, and actually won the 2020 election with the highest number of votes in history. So OF COURSE, he was the one that launched that phony Bin Laden raid. Creepy Joe is indeed a national hero (in his broken brain). In reality, he’s easily the worst President in the history of this country.

  2. Please send Joe to his basement. Have we had enough of this
    wimp?America is laughing as is the entire world.Time to get him
    and the chamelion out of office. We need to do this A.S.A.P.

  3. Democrats had a choice , who to pick to run against Trump. Hilliary was detested by so many people that left this sorrowful image of a worn out man.

  4. This man tries to take credit but we all know he is lying. When is this thing going to realize all his lying does him no good. He has lied while being senator, vice president and suppose to be president.

  5. In my book the idiot isn’t President, and I will never call him one, he more like a Dictator, but of course he only saying what someone is telling him to say. He doesn’t have enough of a brain to actually say this stuff. Yes, I’m wondering how he could have had enough people vote for him to win the election. Oops! can’t say it because they will send the State Police after me.

  6. BIDEN HAS NOT DONE ANYTHING GOOD
    WILL NOT DO ANYTHING GOOD
    ALWAYS LIES AND TAKES CREDIT FOR OTHER PEOPLE’S ACCOMPLISHMENTS
    WHAT A DISGRACE OF PRESIDENT AND KAMALA DISGRACE OF VIDEPRESIDENT
    BUT DANGEROUS THAT PELOSI TAKES CHARGE
    MUST PLACE TRUMP AS PRESIDENT BEING THAT THE VOTES WERE FRAUD

  7. What a lying piece of garbage. Biden is a habitual liar and has
    been his entire life. He lied about his education, he lies about
    nearly every time he opens his mouth. How could the American
    people be so stupid to vote these people into any office whether
    our Congress or most of all the Presidency. We are run by scum.
