The Story Behind Biden’s Emergency Helicopter Landing in Afghanistan

–>”Ladies and gentlemen, where are we now? Where are we now?” Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., said to the National Guard Association today, talking about the war in Afghanistan.

“If you want to know where Al Qaeda lives, you want to know where Bin Laden is, come back to Afghanistan with me,” Biden said. “Come back to the area where my helicopter was forced down, with a three-star general and three senators at 10,500 feet in the middle of those mountains. I can tell you where they are.”

Biden said that Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., “says he’ll follow them to the gates of hell. You don’t have to go to hell. Just go to Pakistan. Just go to that area. That superhighway of terror that exists between Afghanistan and Pakistan.”

We hadn’t heard before about Biden’s helicopter being forced down, so we did some Googling.

 “The superhighway of terror between Pakistan and Afghanistan where my helicopter was forced down…John McCain wants to know where Bin Laden and the gates of Hell are? I can tell him where. That’s where Al Qaeda is. That’s where Bin Laden is. It’s not in the country of Iraq.”

In February 2008, Biden — along with Sens. John Kerry, D-Mass., and Chuck Hagel, R-Neb. — was on a chopper that made an emergency landing in the mountains of Afghanistan.

A snowstorm had forced them down.

No one was injured, and the Associated Press reported at the time that “the senators and their delegation returned to Bagram Air Base in a motor convoy, and left for Turkey.

“The weather closed in on us,” Kerry told the AP at the time in a phone interview from Turkey. “It went pretty blind, pretty fast and we were around some pretty dangerous ridges. So the pilot exercised his judgment that we were better off putting down there, and we all agreed…We sat up there and traded stories.”

Kerry joked, “We were going to send Biden out to fight the Taliban with snowballs, but we didn’t have to do it…Other than getting a little cold, it was fine.”

Video: Biden’s Off The Wall FDR – Depression Comment Not A First – Watch Biden Claim His Plan On Iraq Is Working

Senator Biden’s comments yesterday claiming that FDR addressed the Country on TV during the Great Depression – https://mcauleysworld.wordpress.com/2008/09/23/oops-biden-slips-suggests-fdr-was-president-when-market-crashed/ are not the first unusual comments made by the Senator during this Campaign.

THE SET UP

Senator Biden once called for a Plan to Partition or divide Iraq into three separate Countries. The Plan was, naturally enough, trashed. The Iraqis, and I do mean ALL THE IRAQI’S, all parties, all sides, even al-Queda, called the plan a bad idea.

Biden was even called an Imperialist (as insults go – it doesn’t get any worse in the middle east).

Biden’s response to the universal rejection of his plan, “Who the Hell do they think they are?”. Well the answer is – they are the Iraqi’s – it is their Country. They want to keep it in one piece. Biden just couldn’t let it go …….

FAST FORWARD 

Months later Biden tried to claim that “my plan for Iraq is working”. See the video here: http://embeds.blogs.foxnews.com/2008/09/07/biden-says-his-tripartite-plan-for-iraq-is-working/

Can someone remind the Senator that his plan was rejected – it really was a stinker. Wait till tomorrow to let him know that FDR wasn’t the President during the Great Depression and TV’s hadn’t been invented at the time. You know ….. bring him up to speed a little bit at a time.

OOPS – Biden Slips, Suggests FDR Was President When Market Crashed

WASHINGTON — Vice presidential candidate Joe Biden says today’s leaders should take a lesson from the history books and follow fellow Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt’s response to a financial crisis.

“When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened,”‘ Barack Obama’s running mate recently told the “CBS Evening News.”

Except, Republican Herbert Hoover was in office when the stock market crashed in October 1929. There also was no television at the time; TV wasn’t introduced to the public until a decade later, at the 1939 World’s Fair.

FDR was elected three years later when voters denied Hoover a second term. The Democratic challenger appealed to the “forgotten man” by promising a “new deal” to solve the Depression era.

Biden was commenting on the stock market crash when he said leaders should explain the current economic crisis and how to solve it to the public. 

“Part of what being a leader does is to instill confidence, is to demonstrate what he or she knows what they are talking about and to communicating to people … this is how we can fix this,” Biden said.

NOTHING NEW HERE – OBAMA & BIDEN – DON’T LET THE FACTS GET IN THE WAY OF YOUR STORY. I HAVE TO ADMIT – HIS GAFFES MAKE ME SMILE.
