FEATURING NORMAN SOLOMON – Former Vice President Joe Biden has maintained his front-runner status among Democrats for his party’s Presidential nomination. But, given Biden’s very long political career, there is much to explore in his record and compare to what he says now. One of the most glaring instances of revisionism that Biden has engaged in is his vote for the 2002 Iraq war.
Biden claimed that he quickly backtracked on supporting the war. But analysts have pointed out just how untrue this claim is. Meanwhile a new film based on a true story of a British whistleblower called Official Secrets, has revived those fraught months when the West concocted a deceptive case for the Iraq war nearly 2 decades ago.
