Joe Biden, another John Kerry type insider...
Former Sen John Edwards of North Carolina rcently said his vote to authorize the war was a mistake. Biden's reaction:
"I think he did make a mistake. He voted for the war and against funding it, I think that was a mistake.
Sigh... so if Edwards had voted for both things, then it wouldn't have been a mistake? And yet, Biden manages to very nearly contradict himself with his very next statement:
"The only regret I had voting for the war is that I never anticipated how incompetent the administration would be in using the authority we gave them to avoid war.
He said the American people are starting to "catch on" that they were at least partially "snookered and tricked," though he said that's not the administration's greatest failing.
The argument for going to war with Iraq was based on intelligence that we now know was inaccurate. The information the American people were hearing from the president - and that I was being given by our intelligence community - wasn't the whole story. Had I known this at the time, I never would have voted for this war.full article @ daily kos
Joe Biden seems to like to stab fellow democrats in the back, at least when he isn't voting for a credit card company written bankrupcy bill.
