Biden's Brag Sheet

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

In anticipation of the Senator's speech before the convention tonight, I offer this link to the op-ed he and Richard Lugar wrote in 2002 on the eve of the Senate Foreign Relations' committee hearings on a possible war with Iraq.

Here's the money quote:
. . . when Saddam Hussein is gone, what would be our responsibilities? This question has not been explored but may prove to be the most critical. In Afghanistan, the war was prosecuted successfully, but many of us believe our commitment to security and reconstruction there has fallen short. Given Iraq's strategic location, its large oil reserves and the suffering of the Iraqi people, we cannot afford to replace a despot with chaos.
