Rolling Stone is running Doug Brinkley's interview with Vice President Joe Biden, and for those of us who barely have time to breathe, The Week has seven fascinating highlights: Vice President Biden talks Syria, gay marriage, and why he and Obama are "simpatico."
One of those highlights goes a little something like this:
Now, I love John McCain — I just went out to do an event for him. We used to be close friends, and we're trying to get that back a little bit. Campaigns have a way of causing those things to wane.... But here's where we are with regard to Syria: With all the credibility we've gained in the world, we don't want to blow it like the last administration did in Iraq, saying "weapons of mass destruction."
Vice President Biden is a wise, wise man.
But apparently, the Obama administration still doesn't want to look back, only forward, when it comes to considering prosecuting BushCo for war crimes. And that is not very wise.
