Third Time's a Charm: Biden Calls Saudi Arabia to Clarify Remarks

Vice President Joe Biden called Saudi Arabia’s Prince Saud Al-Faisal to clear up remarks he made about the rise of Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) terrorism in Syria, according to Biden’s office.

The phone call marks the third phone call Biden has made since suggesting that the governments of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates helped fund the ascension of ISIS. During the call, Biden “clarified his recent remarks” about the early days of the Syrian conflict.

Over the weekend, Biden phoned government officials from the United Arab Emirates and Turkey to clarify and apologize for his remarks.
