When news broke Iranian terrorist leader Qassem Suleimani was killed in a U.S. airstrike last week, 2020 Democrat hopeful and former Vice President Joe Biden immediately jumped to condemn President Trump's decision to take him off the battlefield.
"President Trump just tossed a stick of dynamite into a tinderbox, and he owes the American people an explanation of the strategy and plan to keep safe our troops and embassy personnel, our people and our interests, both here at home and abroad, and our partners throughout the region and beyond," Biden released in a statement.
But Biden's record on terrorism is an abysmal one. He was complicit in President Obama allowing ISIS to march across the Middle East, committing genocide along the way. He also urged Obama not to go forward with the raid on Osama bin Laden in Pakistan.
He's also changed his tune on the issue, seemingly because President Trump is the one who made the call.

He's also lying about this record.

Moments ago, Biden says, "No I didn't" when confronted by Peter Doocy for being against the raid.
