Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden has for decades supported wars and military interventions across the planet. Max Blumenthal and Ben Norton speak with former State Department Russia adviser James Carden about his experience in the Obama administration. We discuss the ex vice president’s role in the wars on Iraq, Syria, Libya, and Yugoslavia; his hawkishness against Russia and China; his destructive policies in Latin America; and the Biden family’s corruption in Ukraine.

(This interview was recorded on the night of Super Tuesday, March 3, 2020.)
