Hillary Clinton reportedly chastised Joe Biden over the U.S. raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound that killed the 9/11 mastermind — saying the vice president opposed the mission while she was a fierce advocate of it.
“I know she’s running for president now, because toward the end, she was asked about the Osama bin Laden raid,” Republican state Rep. Tom Taylor told The Atlanta Journal Constitution about the former Secretary of State’s remarks Tuesday at a convention of the National Association of Convenience Stores. The convention was closed to the public and to journalists.
“She took 25 minutes to answer. Without turning the knife too deeply, she put it to Biden,” Taylor said.
Taylor said Clinton repeatedly mentioned Biden’s opposition to the May 2011 raid, while painting herself and then-CIA director Leon Panetta as supporters of the mission that took down the world’s most-wanted terror leader.
