‘US Vice-President Joe Biden has accused America’s key allies in the Middle East of allowing the rise of the Islamic State (IS aka ISIL or ISIS), saying they supported extremists with money and weapons in their eagerness to topple Assad in Syria. America’s “biggest problem” in Syria is its regional allies, Biden told students at the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum at the Institute of Politics at Harvard University on Thursday, 2 October 2014. “Our allies in the region were our largest problem in Syria,” he said, explaining that Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the UAE were “so determined to take down Assad,” that in a sense they started a “proxy Sunni-Shia war” by pouring “hundreds of millions of dollars and tens of thousands of tons of weapons” towards anyone who would fight against Assad. “And we could not convince our colleagues to stop supplying them,” said Biden, thus dissociating the US from unleashing the civil war in Syria. “The outcome of such a policy now is more visible,” he said, as it turned out they supplied extremists from Al-Nusra Front and Al-Qaeda’. Whereas his 2012 statements in the Vice Presidential debates do seem to implicate the U.S. as well.
The blogger Caleb G. (USHypocrisy) points out that “American Vice President Joe Biden is known for putting his proverbial foot in his mouth when speaking before audiences, but his most recent address at the JFK Jr. Forum at the Institute of Politics at Harvard University on Thursday [, 2 October 2014] contained quite a few candid moments where the V.P. acknowledged a number of things no high-level administration officials have yet been willing to publicly acknowledge. Unfortunately the U.S. corporate media organizations have chosen to focus almost exclusively on his carelessly-worded comments in which he described the office of the Vice Presidency as “a bitch“. Or, if they have covered the more revealing comments, they focused singularly on the subsequent apology Biden issued to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for essentially throwing him under the bus, while completely ignoring the substance of what of he was actually saying”.
