In an exclusive broken here:
For some reason the press has missed the biggest story in the addition of Joe Biden to the Barack Obama ticket, in he had 99 United States Senators witness thee worst act of intellectual theft when Senator Biden and his collegues voted in September 2007 to decentralize Iraq in the "Biden Plan for Iraq"into Sunni, Kurd and Shia semi autonomous regions.
The problem in this is Joe Biden stole this plan from two Washington Times commentators in Richard W. Rahn and the legendary Arnaud de Borchgrave.
I first noticed the Biden theft as he started with his CFR backer Les Gelb in May 2006. Biden would write in the Washington Post on August 21, 2006, Page A21, write "his plan" with the following:
Quote: "First, the plan calls for maintaining a unified Iraq by decentralizing it and giving Kurds, Shiites and Sunnis their own regions. The central government would be left in charge of common interests, such as border security and the distribution of oil revenue."
The problem with this is Arnaud de Borchgrave was promoting this plan May 19, 2003. Yes Joe Biden stole "his plan" which had been published 3 years before.
Borchgrave wrote the following from the UPI International Desk of that date:
Quote: "Perhaps more applicable is the Belgium example.....
Like Iraq, Belgium is divided into three parts -- Dutch speaking Flanders, French speaking Walloonia and bilingual Brussels, and like Iraq's Kurds, Sunnis and Shiites, they cordially loath each other. They have their own government, parliament and limos for the ministers."
If this is not bad enough, Richard W. Rahm wrote in the Washington Times, December 20, 2006, a full half year before Mr. Biden came up with his plan the following quotes:
Quote: "Several of us proposed using the Swiss model of strong, local government units, but a weak central government, as I suggested in my July 10, 2003, commentary.
This decentralized approach now is advocated by an increasing number of experts, and several members of Congress including the incoming chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Joseph Biden, Delaware Democrat."
Amazingly Mr. de Borchgrave and Mr. Rahm, published by the same paper in Washington, DC, and coming up with their own plans one based on Belgium and the other Switzerland, and Mr. Rahm even noticing Mr. Biden was advocating it, failed in their columns to note that Joe Biden created intellectual theft with the CFR not giving these two gentlemen due credit for their respective work.
This is the running robbery of Joe Biden as he is apparently a chronic thief of ideas.
He was exposed by the New York Times when he plagiarized a law review article in his first year at Syracuse law school.
It would be his infamous 1988 stealing of British Labour Party Leader in the United Kingdom, Neal Kinnock's speech where Joe Biden actually stole parts of Kinnock's life which would derail his presidential bid.
The New York Times also noted that Joe Biden had been using speeches by Hubert H. Humphrey and Robert F. Kennedy.
This is a pattern and as this blog predicted concerning Sen. Barack Obama, his first choice as President of the United States would be who his running mate was.
Mr. Obama chose an intellectual thief.
Mr. Biden must be exposed for what he has done and in all candor he stepped down in 1988 for doing less. In 2007 before his Senate collegues and the entire United States people with the world watching on Iraq, he stole the ideas of Arnaud de Borchgrave and Richard W. Rahm.
