Well, Biden has outdid himself this time. This is one gaffe that might just get him killed. He just revealed the location he might have to go to if his life is threatened.
According to a report, while recently attending the Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, an annual event where powerful politicians and media elite get a chance to cozy up to one another, Biden told his dinnermates about the existence of a secret bunker under the old U.S. Naval Observatory, which is now the home of the vice president.
The bunker is believed to be the secure, undisclosed location former Vice President Dick Cheney remained under protection in secret after the 9/11 attacks.
According to Clift’s report on the Newsweek blog, Biden “said a young naval officer giving him a tour of the residence showed him the hideaway, which is behind a massive steel door secured by an elaborate lock with a narrow connecting hallway lined with shelves filled with communications equipment.”
Clift continued: “The officer explained that when Cheney was in lock down, this was where his most trusted aides were stationed, an image that Biden conveyed in a way that suggested we shouldn’t be surprised that the policies that emerged were off the wall.”
On Monday, Biden’s press office issued a statement in response to this story, denying the bunker report.
“What the Vice President described in his comments was not — as some press reports have suggested — an underground facility, but rather, an upstairs workspace in the residence, which he understood was frequently used by Vice President Cheney and his aides,” said Biden’s spokesperson Elizabeth Alexander. “That workspace was converted into an upstairs guestroom when the Bidens moved into the residence. There was no disclosure of classified information.”
OK, so they took out the steel doors and communications equipment and made it into a quest room? Why would Cheney put a steel door on a workspace? What did they do with the steel door when they turned it into an office? Inquiringly minds want to know.
All I have to say is: Please Lord do not let anything happen to Obama and please don’t let Obama tell this guy anything that could harm our nation or the president.
