iPol: Joe Biden's Iraq Town Hall

Excerpted from this post at iPol
... Biden characterized this approach as "federalism," and said it was fully within the letter and intent of Iraq's constitution. The answer, according to Biden, is to work with the Iraqi government and factions on an internal settlement while convening multilateral diplomacy to address issues concerning the entire region. ... Biden concluded by stating that the future pillars of American foreign policy will need to be behavior change, rather than regime change, to address foreign governments with whom we have conflicts, and prevention, rather than preemption, to address future threats to American interests and security. ... Biden was professorial, authoritative, sophisticated in his appreciation of the nuances and complexities of the challenges awaiting the next president.
