    Biden Aide Denies Vice President Leaked Classified Location of Cheney Bunker

    Vice President Joe Biden did not leak classified information when he reportedly described to dinner guests the location of a "hideaway" his predecessor, Dick Cheney, used in the days following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, an aide to Biden said Monday.

    "There was no disclosure of classified information," spokeswoman Elizabeth Alexander said.

    She said Biden was merely describing a guest room in the Naval Observatory, the official vice presidential residence in Washington.

    But that's not what Newsweek's Eleanor Clift reported last week.

    She wrote that Biden, while at the Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, described to fellow guests the "bunker-like room" that served as the "secure, undisclosed location" where Cheney holed up after the terror attacks.

    "He said the young naval officer giving him a tour of the residence showed him the hideaway, which is behind a massive steel door secured by an elaborate lock with a narrow connecting hallway lined with shelves filled with communications equipment," she wrote.

    "The officer explained that when Cheney was in lock down, this was where his most trusted aides were stationed, an image that Biden conveyed in a way that suggested we shouldn't be surprised that the policies that emerged were off the wall."

    Biden Reveals Location of Secret VP Bunker

    By Jonathan Passantino
    FOXNews.com

    "Vice President Joe Biden, well-known for his verbal gaffes, may have finally outdone himself, divulging potentially classified information meant to save the life of a sitting vice president.

    According to a report, while recently attending the Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, an annual event where powerful politicians and media elite get a chance to cozy up to one another, Biden told his dinnermates about the existence of a secret bunker under the old U.S. Naval Observatory, which is now the home of the vice president.

    The bunker is believed to be the secure, undisclosed location former Vice President Dick Cheney remained under protection in secret after the 9/11 attacks.

    Eleanor Clift, Newsweek magazine's Washington contributing editor, said Biden revealed the location while filling in for President Obama at the dinner, who, along with Grover Cleveland, is the only president to skip the gathering".

    As much as I know there are some people who like Obama and think he's a really smart fellow I have to say here is proof positive that his judgement is questionable. Or is it that he picked the plagiarism king to make himself look smarter?

    The really sad thing is Biden will be sent as our representative to funerals all over the world and even at that his qualifications are questionable. God forbid he has to take the reigns power. But then the picture really gets scary when you think next in line is the every frightening Speaker Nasty Piglousy liar. So it appears we're stuck with a trifecta of incompetence unequaled in our history.

    And to think people actually voted for the this brain trust.

    Alexander on Monday described the room as a rather accessible place that is far from secret.

    She said the room was not an underground facility, "rather, an upstairs workspace in the residence, which he understood was frequently used by Vice President Cheney and his aides.

    "That workspace was converted into an upstairs guest room when the Bidens moved into the residence."
    Why don't you prove Alexander a liar now. You had no problem beating the war drums and backing an unnamed source from the dinner party in order to howl your disapproval. Better yet substantiate this unnamed source first, then prove Alexander a liar. How do you even know what was said at the party? Did Elenor Clift ever identify her source and quote them?

    One report is that Biden screwed up, his staff comes out and says "no no no, Biden didn't say that, what he really said was...."

    So from now on, we should wait till his staff says what he means? Is that what I've been doing wrong all this time with liberal politicians? Listening to what they say instead of waiting for their staff to say what they REALLY meant?

    Got it.

    She I do believe, was quoting Joe Biden...

    According to a report, while recently attending the Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, an annual event where powerful politicians and media elite get a chance to cozy up to one another, Biden told his dinnermates about the existence of a secret bunker under the old U.S. Naval Observatory, which is now the home of the vice president.

    Eleanor Clift, Newsweek magazine's Washington contributing editor, said Biden revealed the location while filling in for President Obama at the dinner, who, along with Grover Cleveland, is the only president to skip the gathering".
    Yep, pretty clear she's not quoting a third party here... Just Joe.

    Was she one of the head table dinner guests? Does she say she was there and heard it herself? None of the articles I've read specifically state she is a witness herself, just that he allegedly made these comments. And she isn't quoting anybody, she's paraphrasing. If she heard him with her own ears she would be quoting him.

    Please, can you provide some proof of her eyewitness account, that she is quoting him directly. Because what you've presented thus far is not clear at all.

    It's okay Lerxst, we understand. You refuse to accept Biden screwed up, and you'll take the words of his aides over the press... even a liberal mag like NEWSWEEK...

    Can you show that she is quoting a third party?

    Nope.

    So, you take his aides word as to what he meant.

    And I don't hate Obama, I just think his the worst president we've ever had, his policies are going to cost us more then we can afford and his judgment is highly suspect.
