There are many op-eds written that expose politicians’ duplicitous positions, but they are usually able to side-step the accusation even when they're caught in the web of their own deceit.
But there are times when information is revealed that is so earth-shattering, that they cannot evade the truth, and there's no place to hide - and this is one of those times.
Last week, Joe Biden stood in front of the cameras with that smug smile and skewed grin and, without batting an eyelash, proceeded to tell us how much he and Obama have Israel’s back – more than any other administration - and what a tremendous relationship they have:

ATLANTA (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden says he's frustrated by Jewish critics who say the White House is not committed to the security and preservation of Israel as a Jewish state.
Biden told conservative rabbis meeting in Atlanta that he personally is a Zionist, and believes that "no president since Harry Truman has done more for Israel's security than Barack Obama."
Biden also told the international Rabbinical Assembly that sanctions that go into effect this summer to deter Iran from developing nuclear weapons will devastate the Iranian economy."
We all know that what he said about preserving Israel’s security was far from the truth, but he can keep up this ruse because there’s been nothing substantive to prove otherwise – until now.
...Joseph Biden told Israeli officials that they need to accept the idea Iran will acquire nuclear weapons.
This is what this great protector and friend of Israel said in 2008, when he was running for office with Obama, so hold on to your seats, we’re in for a ride. Here’s how much our illustrious vice president supports and loves israel:

"Barack Obama's presidential running-mate Joseph Biden told Israeli officials that they need to accept the idea Iran will acquire nuclear weapons.
"Biden, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, visiting Israel several years ago, told Israeli officials diplomacy and sanctions would be futile against Iran.
"On Monday, Israel's Army Radio reported details of the comments Biden made when he met with 'senior Israeli officials behind closed doors.'
"Reportedly Biden told the officials he opposed 'opening an additional military and diplomatic front' against Iran.
'Israel will have to reconcile itself with the nuclearization of Iran,' Army Radio quoted Biden as telling the Israelis.
"Army Radio said that at that time Israeli officials were shocked by Biden's comments.
"Within Israel, a consensus across the political spectrum has developed on the Iran matter. Iran's President Ahmnadinejad has stated that he will wipe Israel off the map, making clear his use weapons [sic] of mass destruction against the Jewish state.
"Biden has been an ardent supporter of the state of Israel in the Senate. His selection by Barack Obama was seen as an effort to shore up support with the U.S. Jewish community.
"Obama has given mixed signals on the Iran threat. During the Democratic primary he argued for direct negotiations with Iran. He has avoided making any suggestion the U.S. should take military action against Iran.
Last Monday Obama said he would continue to use diplomatic means to stop Iran's nuclear program.
Hey, Joe, Would you be willing to appear on Sean Hannity’s late-night show and say “it ain’t so?”
