Joe Biden Changes Story About Opposing Bin Laden Raid

Joe Biden has a history of opposing successful raids that took out some of the world's most dangerous terrorists. The former vice president is now changing his story of having opposed the successful raid that took out Osama Bin Laden.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden criticized President Trump for ordering a successful airstrike that killed Iranian terrorist Qassem Soleimani. In a statement, the former vice president accused Donald Trump of tossing "a stick of dynamite into a tinder box," warning that the Untied States "could be on the brink of a major conflict across the Middle East."

But Biden also opposed the operation to take out Osama Bin Laden, at least that's what Biden told a group of Democratic politicians back in 2012. 

At the House Democratic Retreat, then Vice President Joe Biden said that his advice to President Obama before the raid was "don't go."

“Mr. President, my suggestion is, don’t go -- we have to do two more things to see if he’s there,” Biden had said in January 2012 of the strategy session.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) hit back at Biden over Friday's claim.

"This isn’t another instance of Joe Biden misspeaking, it’s an instance of Biden flat-out lying," spokesman Steve Guest said.

At Friday’s event in Dubuque, Biden also argued that Thursday’s Trump-ordered airstrike targeting Soleimani crossed a dangerous line.

“No matter how rightly reviled he was in the West, he was a senior figure in the Iranian government,” Biden said.

When confronted by Fox News reporter Steve Doocy, Biden denied telling President Obama "don't go" before the raid to take out Osama Bin Laden. So is Biden lying now or was he lying then?

Part of being a good commander-in-chief is the ability take decisive action. But the only time Biden showed decisiveness was that time he used taxpayer money to extort the Ukrainian government into firing the prosecutor investigating his son's employer.
