After 9/11, Biden Wanted to Send $200 Million Check to Iran
What's Biden's credibility on fighting terrorism?
At the Tuesday-morning meeting with committee staffers, Biden launches into a stream-of-consciousness monologue about what his committee should be doing, before he finally admits the obvious: "I'm groping here." Then he hits on an idea: America needs to show the Arab world that we're not bent on its destruction. "Seems to me this would be a good time to send, no strings attached, a check for $200 million to Iran," Biden declares.
This was after 9/11.
But Biden was being a cheapskate. His future boss, Barack, illegally sent billions in foreign currency on unmarked cargo planes to Iran.
