    **SNIP** Jarrett has denied that she leaked any damaging information about the Clintons. "I'm trying to light a fire under Joe," Jarrett is quoted as saying in the book, which claims Obama sees Biden as the best person to carry on his legacy.
  • Joe Biden changes story on Osama bin Laden raid

    Washington (CNN)Vice President Joe Biden offered an account Tuesday of the decision to launch the raid that killed Osama bin Laden that differed from some of his previous retellings -- and from Hillary Clinton's. His remarks come as he considers facing off against the former secretary of state in the 2016 presidential race, and they seem to signal that he sees his earlier stance on the raid as a potential liability.

    "No matter how deeply involved you are in the U.S. … there’s only one guarantee ... and that's the state of Israel" In the April issue of The Atlantic, Jeffrey Goldberg reports on a remarkable incident last fall at the residence of Vice President Joseph Biden. Speaking before guests—including leaders of Jewish organizations and Jewish officials in the Obama administration—invited to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, Biden recalled meeting Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir when he was a young man in the Senate: “I’ll never forget talking to her in her office with her assistant—a guy named Rabin—about the Six-Day War,” he...

    Republican senators criticized the Bush administration Wednesday over its policies in Iraq, Iran and the Palestinian territories, as Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's first testimony on Capitol Hill in months exposed her to a tough grilling from some members of her own party. "I don't see, Madame Secretary, how things are getting better. I think they're getting worse in Iraq, they're getting worse in Iran," Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., told Rice as she appeared before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Rice also had a tense exchange with moderate Republican Sen. Lincoln Chafee, R-R.I., over the pace of progress toward Israeli-Palestinian...

    Vice President Biden’s national security adviser met with Iranian officials as far back as the summer of 2012, a new report reveals. Jake Sullivan secretly traveled to Oman in July 2012 to meet with Iranian officials, The Associated Press reported Tuesday. This would mark one of the earliest in-person meetings the U.S. held with Iran in recent years. Sullivan joined the State Department in 2009 and served under then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as deputy chief of staff for policy. Although he moved to the White House in February, he continued to partake in backchannel discussions with Iran. The AP...

    November 2, 2012 The Smoking Gun of the Benghazi Cover-up By Pat Buchanan 11/2/2012   On June 6 of this year, a bomb planted at the U.S. compound in Benghazi ripped a 12-foot-wide hole in the outer wall. On June 11, the British ambassador's motorcade was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade, wounding a medic and doctor. The next day, the ambassador was gone and the British Benghazi post was closed. At the same time, the Red Cross, after a second attack, shut down and fled the city. "When that occurred," says Lt. Col. Andrew Wood, who headed the military...

    Chicago—In what could only be interpreted as stabbing American parents in the back, Bill Ayers and Senator Barack Obama, D-IL, plan to mandate the reading of The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx in all public schools upon his election as President of the United States. Elective Decisions has learned—through an anonymous spokesperson at the Heritage Foundation—that Bill Ayers would be tapped to head up the Department of Education, thereby changing American schools from within. According to Bill Ayers, this is the kind of policy that is bold and would insert “a little anarchy” into American schools. “This is a huge...

    Sen. Joseph Biden was illogical on the matter of gay rights. “Look, in an Obama-Biden administration, there will be absolutely no distinction from a constitutional standpoint or a legal standpoint between a same-sex and a heterosexual couple,” Biden said in answer to a question about whether he supported equal benefits for same-sex couples. He went on to invoke the Constitution three more times. “The fact of the matter is that under the Constitution.... same-sex couples should be able to have visitation rights in the hospitals, joint ownership of property, life insurance policies, et cetera. That's only fair.” And, “It's what...

    Americans just want to have "a sleepover with people they like," said Democratic vice-presidential nominee Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., Sunday, accusing Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., of being "divorced" from the nation’s economic woes. "Just the other day Sen. McCain confessed and I quote, 'It's easy for me to go to Washington and frankly be divorced from the day-to-day challenges of the American people,'" Biden said.

    In 1972 Sen. Joseph Biden, the Democrat nominee for vice President, lost his wife and young daughter in a car accident. Losing your family in a auto accident is a gut wrenching tragedy, to be sure. No one underestimates that and no ever blamed Mrs. Biden for the accident. Right up there with despicable things one human can do to another, is falsely accusing the innocent of a crime. “Bearing false witness” is even in the 10 commandments, but Mr. Biden’s feigned Catholicism doesn’t let that stop him. Last night CBS Inside Addition reports, “In a striking moment in December...

    JOSEPH CARI : 30-year friend of VP pick guilty in kickback scheme . No matter what help Barack Obama might get from Sen. Joseph Biden, his newly named vice presidential running mate won't give Obama much cover on the Tony Rezko front. Biden has described himself as a 30-year friend of a key figure in the Rezko trial who's pleaded guilty to a federal extortion charge in Chicago and is awaiting sentencing. When the Delaware senator began contemplating his own 2008 presidential run, he initially was helped by Chicago lawyer Joseph Cari Jr., who also served as Biden's Midwest field...

    With Sen. Joseph Biden (D-DE) as Sen. Barack Obama’s (D-IL) running mate, you have a two-senator ticket - all talk, no executive action; no “favorite son” advantage in a key swing state with a huge chunk of votes in the electoral college, and a man whom voters resoundingly rejected when he was running for the top spot against Obama. So what does Biden do for Obama? Many Dems and Repubs, political operatives, and Senators who have served with both men were remarkably similar in their verdicts: Obama is clearly unqualified for the presidency, and Biden will help him close the...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Helicopters carrying three senior U.S. senators made emergency landings Thursday in the mountains of Afghanistan because of a snowstorm. Sens. John Kerry, Joseph Biden and Chuck Hagel were aboard the aircraft. No one was injured, according a statement from Kerry's office. The senators and their delegation returned to Bagram Air Base in a motor convoy, and have left for Turkey. "After several hours, the senators were evacuated by American troops and returned overland to Bagram Air Base, and left for their next scheduled stop in Ankara, Turkey," the Kerry statement said.

    WASHINGTON -- Democratic senators this week will face trouble trying to cleanse themselves of the stain left by voting for President Bush's Iraq war resolution. Republican senators who have turned against U.S. military intervention in Iraq are not interested in bailing out Democrats by approving their proposal to repeal the 2002 authorization passed overwhelmingly by Congress. As Congress returns this week from the year's first recess, authorization repeal is supposed to be attached to the bill containing homeland security recommendations by the 9/11 commission. But Sen. Norm Coleman, who has become prominent among Republican critics of Bush's war policy, told...
