Biden Denies That Removing Putin Is U.S. Policy, Only ‘My Moral Outrage’

March 29, 2022 (EIRNS)—President Joe Biden yesterday repeated again and again at a White House press conference on his 2023 budget proposal, that his remark made about Russian President Putin in Warsaw on March 26, that Putin “cannot remain in power” was not U.S. government policy for regime change, but just Biden’s expression of “moral outrage” at a “bad man doing bad things.” The press asked him about the remark many times, and when asked if he regretted saying it, he insisted, “I’m not walking anything back.” He said, “The fact of the matter is, I was expressing the moral outrage I felt toward the way Putin is dealing, and the actions of this man, just the brutality of it. ... I want to make it clear: I wasn’t then, nor am I now, articulating a policy change. I was expressing the moral outrage that I feel, and I make no apologies for it.”

In fact, Biden was letting “the truth slip out,” as said last evening by former 2020 Presidential candidate and Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, appearing on the Tucker Carlson show on Fox News. Today Gabbard tweeted, “Biden’s ‘Putin cannot remain in power’ was no gaffe. The truth just accidentally slipped out. The strategy and tactics are the same as our previous regime change wars: inflicting hardship and suffering on the population in order to incite revolt/chaos.” Her tweet included a video clip from the Fox News interview. She said that the West is waging a modern-day siege. It is economic warfare. They are lying to the American people, because they know how sick Americans are of regime-change warfare.

Gabbard, who twice served in combat in Southwest Asia with the National Guard, warned of the nuclear war danger. She asked, “What happens next? A regime-change war is very different against a nuclear-armed Russia.”
