Presidentish Joe Biden said in Tokyo on Monday that the United States would “get involved militarily to defend Taiwan,” but now the White House is scrambling to clarify what Biden really meant.
There he goes again.
“I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.” Psalm 38:8 KJV

That’s why the White House went almost immediately into Full-Bore Panic Mode.
“As the President said, our policy has not changed,” a White House official said according to a Daily Caller report. “He reiterated our One China policy and our commitment to peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait. He also reiterated our commitment under the Taiwan Relations Act to provide Taiwan with the military means to defend itself.”
But that’s not what Biden said and of course the White House knows it — otherwise, there’d have been no need to clarify.
