The United States of America was attacked by nineteen militants associated with the terrorist group al Qaeda on September 11, 2001. That attack has been characterized as the deadliest terrorist act in world history. The overall death toll was 2,996 including 344 firefighters, 71 law enforcement officers, and 56 military personnel. Thousands were injured. The attack was planned and directed by Osama Bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda.
On May 2, 2011, nearly ten years later, Bin Laden was brought to justice by U.S. Navy SEALS. That action was opposed by then Vice President Joseph R. Biden during a meeting with President Barack Obama and his National Security team in the White House situation room. Biden has since changed his position not-with-standing the accounts of others present.
Today, a suicide bomber killed 12 U.S. Marines and a Naval Corpsman in Kabul Afghanistan. Many other U.S. military people have been wounded. The death toll may continue to rise. Substantial numbers of Afghan men, women and children were also killed. Countless others have been wounded.
Mr. Biden is now the President of the United States. In an emotional statement from the White House hours after the attack he said: ”To those who carried out this attack, as well as anyone who wishes America harm, know this: We will not forgive. We will not forget. We will hunt you down and make you pay. I will defend our interests and our people with every measure at my command.”
Why should Mr. Biden be believed now when he previously opposed bringing Bin Laden to Justice.
His words are not convincing.
What cannot be disputed is his legacy.
The blood of our brave men is on Biden’s hands.
It will not wash off!
