Joe Biden Strikes Again- Thanks Spain Prime Minsiter for Helping Us in Iraq

Though I really disagree with VP Joe Biden I do like him in many ways. I also want him to be some asset to this nation as VP in a constructive way. But when I see things like this I realize why the Obama administration keeps him off the stage

MAN, BIDEN IS A GAFFE WITH LEGS: during his meeting with Spain's primer minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero in Chile yesterday, Biden thanked Zapatero for his effort... in Iraq (link in Spanish, haven't found this detail in any English-language media).As everybody knows, the first decision Zapatero made after his unexpected win in 2004, right after the Madrid train terrorist attacks, was to abruptly and unilaterally pull out from Iraq. So either Biden made a gaffe, or he was thanking Zapatero for angering Bush...

UPDATE. When I wrote the post I didn't remember to add this, which makes things even worse: shortly after ordering the withdrawal of Spanish forces from Iraq, Zapatero called the other countries to follow the example. Some help, Biden.

Tip fo the Hat to the Corner

Update- Biden should have left it at Afghanistan that would have been correct

I hope you are not saying that Spain has done nothing in Iraq to help the situation since their troops were withdrawn. You do realize that there is more than one way to skin a cat, right?

You would do yourself a great service by checking some simple facts before posting stuff like this that really reflects poorly on you.

The moral of the story here is that you should never question the veracity of what VP Biden says because, unlike most of the media and blogosphere, he knows what he's talking about.

Spain was in the forefront of tryng to get withdrawls of our allies from Iraq. So no they were not helpful
