• Biden Bashes Panetta For Calling Out Obama On Iraq: Yeah He Was Wrong But Wait ‘Till He’s “Out Of Office” First

    According to Vice President Joe Biden, being VP is a “Bitch.” At least that’s what he told a crowd of students at Harvard University last night. And today, Uncle Joe did what all vice presidents have to do: defend their boss’s record.

    Much of the Arab world is on fire because a formidable force of murdering Muslims that Obama allowed time to form and grow is beheading and burning its way into power. And Former defense secretary and CIA director Leon Panetta is calling out Obama on his failed foreign policy record.

    It’s that kind of criticism that Joe Biden called “inappropriate” because, as Joe put it, Obama is still in office.

    Turns out, Leon Panetta has dedicated an entire chapter from his upcoming book Worthy Fights, undressing the Obama administration’s failure to secure a status of forces agreement that would have allowed a residual American military force to remain in Iraq.

    “The White House [was] so eager to rid itself of Iraq that it was willing to withdraw rather than lock in arrangements that would preserve our influence and interests,” Panetta wrote.

    And during a speech today at Harvard University, Biden called Panetta’s criticism mean and unfair.

    “I’m finding that former administration officials, as soon as they leave, write books—which I think is inappropriate,” Biden said. “I’m serious. I do think it’s inappropriate. At least give the guy a chance to get out of office.”

    But if Biden’s going to be out there blocking and tackling for Obama, he’d better pace himself.

    Wednesday, President Bill Clinton’s former CIA director James Woolsey said President Barack Obama’s attempt to blame the intelligence community for his failure is getting “less and less true.” Woolsey said the forced resignation of the Head of Defense Intelligence Agency Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn made it “very clear he was very worried about the stability of the Iraqi army.”

    “The head of DIA, nine months ago, Mike Flynn, was making it very clear he was very worried about the stability of the Iraqi army. And so I think that side of things really was not dealt with real squarely by the administration and I think it did, it did either, permitted or required Flynn to leave early, retire early, and he’s the most brilliant intelligence officer this countries seen in the last couple decades,” Woolsey said.
