Presidential candidate Joe Biden is adding lies on top of lies to cover up his backing of the Iraq invasion.
At last night's Democratic Party debate hosted by ABC News Biden lied about his Iraq record, just like he did at the first two debates.
In the July debate, Biden claimed: "From the moment 'shock and awe' started, from that moment, I was opposed to the effort, and I was outspoken as much as anyone at all in the Congress."
When he first said that, it received virtually no scrutiny except for Mideast scholar Stephen Zunes, who wrote the piece "Biden Is Doubling Down on Iraq War Lies." Zunes outlined much of Biden's record, including his insistence in May 2003—months after the Iraq invasion—that "There was sufficient evidence to go into Iraq."
During Thursday night's debate, Biden claimed that he voted for the Iraq invasion authorization to "to allow inspectors to go in to determine whether or not anything was being done with chemical weapons or nuclear weapons."
