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 is such fun!
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."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."

It is a bad experience to be in those mountains and forced to land. No power margin and blind landing on mountain tops that look like the points of sewing needles.:(

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

Lets have a little compassion. He does have a severe brain aneurysm that can effect how he thinks and his oral diarrhea. EVEN WORSE he has a severe case of stupid democrat syndrome. You know it's really not nice to make fun of the disabled.Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

Hey - Billary was under sniper fire, at the air base, trying to protect a little girl with flowers! This is nothing!:DAt Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

I wish the MSM would talk about these things.
We'd be laughing all day long! :DIf leftists didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all.
