2/21/20 Matthew Hoh on Biden’s Pro-War Past

Scott interviews Matthew Hoh about Joe Biden’s history pushing for the war in Iraq and his subsequent attempt to whitewash this record. When Hillary Clinton faced Barack Obama in the 2008 primary, Hillary’s record in support of the war was a major factor in Obama’s victory—Hoh wishes that this time around the other Democrats would make more out of Biden’s pro-war history instead of mostly letting foreign policy go undiscussed. Even Sanders, who has been sound in his opposition to the war in Yemen, and who theoretically should be staunchly antiwar, has not made this a central aspect of his campaign. The rest of the major candidates, Hoh says, are just as bad as Biden.
