Joe Biden I agree does know security and foreign relations, I think Obama made a great choice in picking Biden for the veep slot. Found this article at the Huffington Post concerning a speech Joe made in 2001 and found it very interesting;

On September 10, 2001, Senator Biden, then (as now) chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, prophetically warned of the new Bush administration's exclusive focus on missile defenses in a speech at the National Press Club. He said, "We will have diverted all that money to address the least likely threat while the real threats come into this country in the hold of a ship, or the belly of a plane, or are smuggled into a city in the middle of the night in a vial in a backpack."
