Norvergence: Over 16 years after the U.S. attacked Iraq, previous Vice President Joe Biden is as yet attempting to clarify his decision in favor of the war and when his emotions about mediation advanced.
In the spring of 2004, Biden delivered a speech at the University of Delaware where he gave the real reason why America has gone to war with Iraq.
Let me tell you what I see with Iraq. We had to go into Iraq, not because Saddam Hussein was part of Al Qaeda, there was no evidence of that, not because he possessed nuclear weapons or because he posed an imminent threat to the United States, there was no evidence of that.
The legitimate reason for going into Iraq was he violated every single commitment he made and warranted being taken down. And the international community and we had a right to respond.
