Joe Biden is now telling some pretty brazen lies outright…
Either he is lying through his teeth, or the dementia is kicking back in.
According to Biden, he served as a liaison during the 6 day war between Egypt and Israel in 1967….
Breitbart has determined that this is a demonstrable lie. To start things off Golda Meir was not even prime minister until 1969 where she was head of state during the 1973 Yom-Kippur war.
There are other facts in here which make his claim an absolute joke, but i’ll let the sources handle this one:
According to Breitbart:
There are several factual inaccuracies in Biden’s claim, including the following:
The Six Day War took place in 1967. Biden was a law student; he was only elected to the U.S. Senate in 1972.
Golda Meir was not the prime minister of Israel in 1967; that was Levi Eshkol. She was only elected in 1969.
Biden’s first visit to Israel as a U.S. Senator took place in 1973 (he has told the story several times before).
Biden was not a “liaison” between Israel and Egypt; if he was, he was a poor one, because war broke out weeks later.
Fox News states:
Though Biden Wednesday appeared to be touting his relationship with Meir and support for Israel, a classified Israeli memo unearthed last year summarizing the meeting offered details Biden left out.
The memo claims that Biden told Meir that the territories Israel had captured during the Six-Day War, which included West Bank and the Gaza Strip, amounted to “creeping annexation.”
