Biden Claims He Didn’t Believe Hussein Had WMDs Despite Vote

Warning: Explicit Language

While implying that his vote for the authorization of the use of military force against Iraq was a mistake, former Vice President Joe Biden offered a perplexing explanation for his decision.

Biden told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell he gave then-President Bush the green light to use the United States Armed Forces against Sadaam Hussein’s regime in Iraq even though he didn’t believe Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

Biden’s revelation is particularly surprising given the crux of the argument for going into Iraq was predicated on the assumption Sadaam Hussein had WMDs.  

What’s worse is that Biden, Delaware’s then-senior senator, passionately argued in favor of preemptive military action against Iraq for that very reason.

Biden’s confidence, and that of other Democrats, Republicans, and the intelligence community helped rally the American public to unite behind the march to war.

Before the insurgency emerged after the overthrow of Saddam’s dictatorship, it was fashionable to criticize the first Bush administration for not pushing coalition forces into Baghdad in 1991.

In a 1998 Senate hearing, Biden explicitly stated that the only way to disarm Iraq was “taking Sadaam down.”

Hussein was justifiably in America’s crosshairs for years over continued human rights abuses and flagrantly violating United Nations Security Council Resolutions after the first Gulf War. Yet it slowly became clear after the 2003 invasion, the policymakers didn’t take into account the threat of guerilla warfare or the challenges of democratization, to say nothing of the intelligence failure.  

Though the invasion of Iraq was swift and decisive, U.S. casualties mounted in the ensuing occupation and insurgency. Four thousand four hundred and ninety-six American service members ultimately perished.

As did hundreds of thousands of Iraqis.

And Joe Biden now claims he knew all along Saddam Hussein never had WMDs.

  1. Well, he’s a pathological liar who can’t remember what he said yesterday so it’s just more propaganda….and stupid. Hussein used it on the Kurds before and we know he shipped them to Syria and Assad who used them also.

    • Oh Boy!!! Biden is running for President with his main nap time in congress. Gentleman there are congress taps on him continually napping in the sessions of congress!! If you can find these taps, OUR party the Republicans for Trump should be a land slides!!! I really think this election is going to be a great landslide. Thank you demarcates for electing a loser to run against our great President Trump and family. Dr. Rene’ Monroe

  2. Apparently, Biden chose to “go along, to get along”….regarding his vote?
    No surprise there.
    However, there were WMD’s …USED…in Iraq, also shipped out to Syria
    and…my 2nd son was “boots on the ground” during Desert Storm.
    Returning Military…made the claim that they saw WMD’s there in Iraq
    …and these were secured by our Forces there. MSM…was silent!!

  3. SLEEPING 😴😴😴 JOE BIDEN is nothing but a DELUSIONAL HABITUAL LIAR, FRAUD and RADICAL RACIST BIGOT . That needs to be ADMITTED INTO THE NEAREST MENTAL INSTITUTION FOR THE DERANGED AND DEPLORABLE LOWLIFES. He has never ever told the TRUTH in his WHOLE LIFE. He has LIED to his FIRST WIFE and his WHOLE FAMILY.
    That why his TWO brothers his Daughter and his only son HUNTER are in the state they are in .

      • And you Gary must have been paid, or somehow you’re being paid by people like George Soros to write here what you have. So listen punk, ignorant idiots who just repeat what they’re are told without doing their own exhaustive research, will perish. Not a damned one of ya’s knows how to fight or plan for a battle. You are the one with “terrible characteristics.” You are the one who will not last long in this era.

      • Sounds like a real idiot that was a Bernie supporter guess what he is going to lose and so is Biden they are both good for nothing if they were in office they would have done nothing and we would all be dying or dead! So grow up and know what your talking about before you shoot your big mouth off

  4. Democrats: Aren’t you even a little bit embarrassed yet? This moronic liar is YOUR recommendation to be President of the USA. Are you aware of the number of people who were once Democrats but are now switching parties BECAUSE of the halfwits you keep putting for as your recommendation for President. If you think you can sneak Hillary back in contention the GOP will start sending campaign money back to the donors because they would know they would no longer need it. Someone mislabeled you’re show. You think it is a ‘Drama’. The entire Country knows it is a ‘Comedy’.

  5. The ignition point was not that Saddam had WMDs but Saddam’s refusal of inspections to verify that he didn’t when we knew of the potential without a doubt. We knew he had the facilities to manufacture them and we knew he used them on the Kurds. The claim that he did not have them isn’t proven; he, at the very least, gave implications if not claims that he did. If someone with a bulge in his pocket claims he has a gun, don’t make the assumption he’s just happy to see you. Especially if he’s already shot someone.

  6. They need to give Biden a new nickname besides Sleepy Joe or quid pro quo Joe to Bouncing Biden. His views and selections on items changes with the prevailing wind if who ever is asking the questions. First he said he’d seriously consider picking a Republican as his VP running mate, then he said two days later to a different reporter that he’d really wish Michelle O’Bumer would consider it. Then he’s for the 2nd amendment, but then not. For witnesses in Impeachment, then not when he found out it included his deadbeat son. For strong immigration to include kids in cages, then against when Trump was doing it. Fir moving capitol to Jerusalem until Trump did it, now “it was a mistake”. Etc, etc. The man’s a walking(barely) contradiction.

  7. Just for the fun of it:
    saddam husseim gased Iran, the Kurds, his own people. FACT. Germany, France and the US supplied the chemicals.
    FACT: the French magazine PARIS-MATCH showed many pictures of convoys of trucks loaded to the gills going to Syria, just before the last US deployment to Iraq.
    FACT: the German recognized their chemicals when Assad gased his people. German chemicals that had been given to saddam hussein!
    And NOBODY believed saddam hussein had any WMDs?????????

  8. The claim made is that the draft was over before he became of age .I seriously doubt this since
    I just missed the draft by one year.How old is Joe?

  9. In polite words, Joe shined his Masters shoes, got his dime, and placed their proxy vote he disagreed with, OR he’s a damn liar

  10. I remember Rick Santorum showed a box of glass vials that may have contained Ricin, a very lethal bio weapon, that was found in Iraq. Not sure why this was the first and last time it was shown on TV. We know that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, be cause their own government used them on their own northern citizens. Over 5000 people were killed by them.
