RFK Jr. blasts Biden for sending cluster bombs to Ukraine, a year after Psaki said it could 'be a war crime'

Democratic presidential candidate Robert Kennedy Jr. has called on President Biden to “stop the ceaseless escalation” between the United States and Russia after he gave his administration the green light to send controversial weapons known as cluster munitions to Ukraine.

“Last year, WH Press Secretary Jen Psaki called the use of cluster bombs a ‘war crime.’ Now President Biden plans to send them to Ukraine. Stop the ceaseless escalation! It is time for peace,” Kennedy wrote in a tweet.

“Biden was opposed to cluster bombs in 1982 as well, when he opposed their sale to Israel,” Kennedy, who entered the White House race in April, added in a separate tweet. “What happened to his conscience?”

“There are reports of illegal cluster bombs and vacuum bombs being used by the Russians. If that’s true, what is the next step of this administration? And is there a red line for how much violence will be tolerated against civilians in this manner that’s illegal and potentially a war crime,” one reporter asked.

“It is – it would be. I don’t have any confirmation of that. We have seen the reports. If that were true, it would potentially be a war crime,” Psaki responded at the time.

In a Washington Post report published Friday, the outlet recalled Biden’s “complicated history” on the issue of cluster munitions and highlighted how Biden has flip-flopped on the issue over time as it relates to Israel’s use of the weapons.

Lee, another Democrat who serves on the House Appropriations Committee, said she was “alarmed” that Biden was “considering sending cluster bombs to Ukraine.”

“Cluster bombs work by scattering tiny ‘bomblets’ over a wide area. Many of these bomblets don’t explode – but remain a threat to civilians for decades,” Lee said on Twitter.
