White House Walks Back Biden Claim During Interview

We recently reported about an interview Biden gave that got A LOT of attention.

During an interview on CNN with Fareed Zakaria Biden seemed to elude cluster munitions are being sent to Ukraine because the US has limited 155 artillery shells. Meaning that Biden (he’s the president) didn’t create a plan to keep a steady flow of munitions going to Ukraine.

“These are weapons that 100 nations banned, including some of our closest NATO allies,” Zakaria said. “When there was news that the Russians might be using it admittedly against civilians your then press secretary said this might be constitute war crimes.”

“This is a war relating to munitions. And they’re running out of that ammunition, and we’re low on it,” Biden told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria. “And so, what I finally did, I took the recommendation of the Defense Department to – not permanently – but to allow for this transition period while we get more 155 weapons, these shells, for the Ukrainians.”

Now officials days later are cleaning up the mess.

“The military has specific requirements for the numbers of weapons systems and ammunition we maintain in our reserves in case of contingencies or military conflict,” a White House official said in a statement. “Everything we send to Ukraine is in excess of that. So, the U.S. is not running out of ammunition ourselves.”

But the damage was already done, the Chinese even released propaganda surround Biden’s words.

Of course his mannerisms during his trip to Europe did not help and MSNBC is worried about it.
