Joe Biden revives false claim he was ‘shot at’ while overseas
UPDATED 7:05 PM PT – Thursday, February 4, 2021
Joe Biden continues to lie about his past. This time, he brought back a debunked story of him allegedly being shot at while overseas. At a debate in 2007, Biden claimed he was targeted at the Green Zone in Baghdad. He had to retract those comments after getting backlash from veterans.
Joe Biden lies. A lot.

“I’ve been with some of you when we’ve been in places you would not have had any idea you would want to be when you were going to the school of foreign policy and foreign service,” Biden claimed. “They never told you that was going to happen.”
Hillary Clinton is another prominent Democrat who falsely claimed to have been shot at in Bosnia during the 1990s, which also never happened.
Additionally, Biden has made other false claims about his past. These claims included him being a coal miner, fighting with “Corn Pop,” and being arrested in South Africa in the 1970s, all of which have been debunked.
