Sen. Joseph Biden is now saying that nuclear weapons in the hands of Iran is unacceptable:
In an upcoming TV special, Democratic Sen. Joseph Biden declares nuclear technology in the hands of Iran’s “despotic theocracy” is “unacceptable,” but a critic charges the Delaware lawmaker’s engagement policy with Tehran over the last decade makes him partly responsible for the growing threat the U.S. faces from the mullah regime.
Biden tells host Chris Wallace in Fox News Channel’s “Iran: The Nuclear Threat” airing Sunday night, “To have a despotic theocracy in possession of a nuclear weapon, creates a much bigger danger than having a democratically elected government in control of a nuclear weapon. … They’re much more likely to use it or threaten to use it or attempt to use it for blackmail.”
But there are a few people taking issue with him now.
But critic Jerome Corsi, author of newly released “Atomic Iran,” contends Biden’s words should be assessed in the context of his “long track record of appeasement and double talk on the Iran nuclear risk.”
“The mullahs have known that Biden is their No. 1 go-to guy in the Senate whenever they want their bidding done to fool the American people,” Corsi charges.
In his book, Corsi names Biden, along with Democratic Sens. John Kerry, Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton as recipients of funds from the “pro-mullah lobby” in the U.S.
In 2002, amid protests from Iranian-Americans, Biden held a fund-raiser in the California home of a prominent lobbyist for the radical mullah regime, during which the senator “delivered a sweeping condemnation” of President Bush’s “Axis of Evil” formula, according to Ken Timmerman, writing in Insight magazine.
One Iranian-American activist said, “Getting the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to appear at this event will certainly be seen by the regime in Tehran as a show of support.”
Held at the home of Sadegh Namazi-khah, the fund-raiser brought in $30,000 for Biden’s re-election to the Senate that year.
“He really impressed us by his grasp of world affairs,” Namazi-khah told Insight. “He encouraged us to make our views known and to get more involved in American politics.”
Many of the participants were impressed with Biden’s friendly attitude toward the Islamic Republic of Iran, Timmerman wrote.
The senator said “Iran always wanted to be an ally of the United States and to have good relations with the U.S.,” according to Housang Dadgostar, a prominent lawyer.
In February, Biden said the Bush administration, which says it does not rule out any option to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, had to be willing to sign on to a “genuine nonaggression pact.”
So now that it is unacceptable for Iran to have nuke’s we should prevent it by promising never to attack them. Is he freakin kidding me? Spoken like a true moonbat.
