As we maintain vigils over the heroes of 9/11 today, it is also important that we remember those who made America weaker so as to not take their counsel on anything of national security importance. One of those men is Joe Biden. During the planning for the raid by SEAL Team 6 that found and killed Osama bin Laden, Joe Biden pushed for a cancelation of the daring operation.

On January 3, 2020, Biden engaged in the following exchange with Fox News reporter Peter Doocy:

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?”

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.”

Do you think Joe Biden has the mental fitness to serve as president?

It was a lie and everyone in D.C. knew he was lying. Even the ultraliberal Washington Post gave Biden’s claim “Three Pinocchios,” their rating system which calls out statements that contain “significant factual error and/or obvious contradictions” and that are in the realm of “mostly false.”

Daily Wire reported, “According to the various accounts of administration officials involved in the internal debate, Biden was one of the two main skeptics of the intelligence suggesting that bin Laden was in Abbottabad. He publicly even stated that he said ‘don’t go’ until more intelligence was gathered,” the Washington Post reported. “So it’s certainly clear he advised Obama not to go at that moment when Obama’s advisers were debating the issue. No matter what he said to Obama privately, he cannot so easily argue that he did not offer this guidance. Bin Laden, on the other hand, wanted to push the U.S. into ‘crisis’ by assassinating Obama and thrusting ‘totally unprepared’ Biden into the presidency.” The situation has changed very little.

In a letter bin Laden wrote to high echelon Aa-Qaeda terrorists, in which he was commanding the group to create two teams to target U.S. aircraft that could be carrying Obama or then-CIA Director David Petraeus, bin Laden specifically told the terrorists to “not to target visits by U.S. Vice President Biden.” Bin Laden knew that with Biden in charge America would suffer and weaken.

Bin Laden’s niece, Noor bin Ladin, recently told the New York Post that President Donald Trump needs to win re-election for “not only America, but Western civilization as a whole,” warning that Islamic terrorism “proliferated under the Obama/Biden administration, leading to them coming to Europe.” Even she knows that Joe Biden, her uncle’s candidate, is a danger to the Western world.
