Quote du jour

“Frankly, I believe it. The vice president, (Biden) when he was a senator — a very new senator — voted against the aid package for South Vietnam, and that was part of the deal when we pulled out of South Vietnam to try and help them survive. He said that when the Shah fell in Iran in 1979 that that was a step forward for progress toward human rights in Iran. He opposed virtually every element of President Reagan’s defense build-up. He voted against the B-1, the B-2, the MX and so on. He voted against the first Gulf War. So on a number of these major issues, I just frankly, over a long period of time, felt that he had been wrong.”
-Robert Gates, Obama’s first Secretary of Defense, on Joe Biden being “wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”
