4/26/19 Stephen Zunes on the Other Reason Biden Shouldn’t Be President

Stephen Zunes talks about democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden’s shameful record on foreign policy—the real reason he shouldn’t be president. In the senate, Biden was a champion of deposing Saddam Hussein all along, explains Zunes, and his claims of merely wanting weapons inspections in Iraq should be disregarded. Setting aside the disturbing evidence of Biden’s inappropriate touching of young girls, his record on U.S. foreign policy should disqualify him from our approval.
