Joe Knows Foreign Policy

Read this fascinating article about Senator Joe Biden’s foreign policy leadership and knowledge.

On September 10, 2001, Senator Biden, then (as now) chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, prophetically warned of the new Bush administration’s exclusive focus on missile defenses in a speech at the National Press Club. He said, “We will have diverted all that money to address the least likely threat while the real threats come into this country in the hold of a ship, or the belly of a plane, or are smuggled into a city in the middle of the night in a vial in a backpack.”
