In January 2011, Vice President Joe Biden said that America will not cut and run in 2014 when the US-led military coalition plans to hand over control of security to Afghan forces.
Speaking after a meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, Biden said training and aid will continue even after responsibility for security is handed over. He added that both sides share a common goal of a ”stable, sovereign Afghanistan.”
Early in July, he said he wouldn’t answer questions about Afghanistan on July 4th:
FLASHBACK TO JULY 2ND:
Biden: “I’m not going to answering any more questions on Afghanistan. Look, it’s the 4th of July”
