    Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday told the West Point graduates that they are “more than worthy” of the “proud legacy” of the military academy.

While saying that the United States has foreign-policy objectives now that are different from those it held in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, the vice president pointed to the men and women who responded to the call to arms as an example for the graduates. “Those warriors sent a message to the world that if you harm America, we will follow you to the end of the earth,” Biden said.
