Joe Biden recently launched an advert attacking President Trump after he authorized the killing of terrorist leader Qassem Soleimani. But the former Vice President didn’t feel the same way back in 1996.
A video segment from ABC news back in 1996 shows Joe Biden declaring that any attack on a U.S. facility is grounds for retaliation.
Biden’s response came after Iranians launched an attack against US Air Force dorms in Saudi Arabia, during Bill Clinton’s presidency.
“It’s an act of war, if they do, and they yield their sovereignty. Wiretaps won’t change that,” says Biden.
“And so the United States does what?” asks ABC’s Sam Donaldson.
To which Biden responds “It could take whatever action it deems appropriate.”
