When it comes to political figures that say the wrong things or uses wrong examples to explain something, most news outlets will unanimously state that our vice-president, Joe Biden, is the world leader. The Inquisitr reported numerous examples in which he has said or explained things in a way which may have done him more harm than good. This includes him using the term “shylock” which is recognized as anti-Semitic and utilizing Bob Packwood as an example in a domestic violence speech since Packwood has been accused of sexual harassment and assault by many women. Now he is in the news again for saying about being vice-president, “Isn’t that a b**ch!”
Now reports are coming in that Joe Biden has spent the last two days – his entire weekend – apologizing to the country of Turkey and other Middle Eastern allies of the United States. Why? Well… it is reported that he said some things again that didn’t go over well.
According to CNN, spent his Saturday apologizing on the phone to the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Mohammed bin Zayad Al Nahyan. This is confirmed by representatives from both the United States and Turkey. From what is written, the problem originated during an appearance last week when he spoke about Turkey, UAE and other Middle Eastern allies at John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. Biden told attendees that the militant Islamic State had been inadvertently strengthened by actions allies took to assist opposing groups fighting against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, when he said the following.
“They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad. Except that the people who were being supplied were al-Nusra and al-Qaeda and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world. We could not convince our colleagues to stop supplying them. President Erdogan told me, he’s an old friend, said, ‘You were right. We let too many people (including foreign fighters) through.’ Now they are trying to seal the border.”
The part that has caused Joe Biden to issue an apology is the latter because Tayyip Erdogan denied ever saying such a thing. As a matter of fact, Erdogan was angered by Biden’s comments in which he said that Biden needs to apologize for said statements.
However, Joe Biden’s apologies wouldn’t just be limited to one day. From what is reported by The Blaze, the apologies continued which extended not just to Turkey, but to our allies, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
Now that you’ve read about Vice-President Joe Biden’s spoken blunder in which he had to apologize to allied countries in the Middle East, what is your opinion? Was he in the wrong for criticizing American allies or is Biden wrong to apologize for telling what many believe to be the truth about the duplicitous behavior of many of America’s Middle Eastern allies who may actually be supporting terrorism?
