Biden at the Polish Embassy

By on 4.15.10 | 1:54AM

Politico reported on the written condolences Vice President Joe Biden offered yesterday at the Polish Embassy in Washington, but didn't include Biden's comments to reporters afterward. I haven't seen them mentioned anywhere in the English-language press, but here they are translated from what's reported in Poland's Gazeta Wyborcza:

"This tragedy is hard to comprehend. I'd like to tell all people in Poland: our love, admiration, and support are with you. I can only imagine what would be going on in the United States if -- God forbid -- our president, First Lady, along with a group of highest government dignitaries and most respected citizens, had lost their lives in this manner. This is a moment of mourning for Poles all over the world."
