Pre VP debate: Biden - not Romney - opposed bin laden raid, writes AEI's Marc Thiessen

In advance of the Vice Presidential candidates debate on Thursday, October 11, we thought you would be interested in AEI fellow Marc Thiessen's recent Washington Post column about Biden's opposition to the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

"[T]oday it is Biden -- the lone opponent of immediate action to kill bin Laden -- who is painting Romney as unfit for office because he allegedly would have opposed it. There is, of course, no evidence that Romney would not have ordered the bin Laden raid. But we now know for certain that, were it up to Biden, the raid would not have gone forward."

Marc Thiessen has served in a senior position at the White House, as a speechwriter for the Secretary of Defense, and as a senior policy adviser to the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He is the author of Courting Disaster in which he discusses the CIA interrogation program.
