An Interview With Stephen Zunes: Joe Biden, The Iraq War, Rewriting History & Beyond

In todays video, I spoke to Stephen Zunes about Joe Biden's role in the Iraq war, his rewriting of history and his following years. Stephen opposed the war and wrote many articles against the war at the time. From this experience, Stephen is able to break down just how influential Biden was in making the Iraq war happen. He did not only just vote for the Iraq war, when many democrats did not, he was the Chairman of Senate Foreign Relations Committee at the time. This meant he could of used his position to prevent the war, but instead he strongly supported it. In recent years, Biden has tried to rewrite his position on the Iraq war and Stephen breaks down these lies.
