Biden's undiplomatic truth-telling

  I got a chuckle over the rumpus after Vice President Biden noted  that Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have aided  Sunni extremists -- not directly the Islamic State but certainly members of the terrorist community, some of whom are now merrily murdering people  (yes, they clearly enjoy killing) as Islamic State recruits. Saudi Arabia, of course, is the country that brought us al-Qaida.

Of course this was very undiplomatic, as is truth telling in diplomacy generally. And Mr. Biden is a chatterbox.
