Biden claims son Beau died in Iraq during speech in Colorado


President Biden falsely claimed that his son Beau Biden “lost his life in Iraq” in during a speech in Colorado on Wednesday.

The president invoked his son’s military service during an address before signing a decree to designate a former training site for the Army’s 10th Mountain division as a national monument.

“I say this as a father of a man who won the Bronze Star, the conspicuous service medal, and lost his life in Iraq. Imagine the courage, the daring, and the genuine sacrifice — genuine sacrifice they all made,” he said praising the storied Army unit’s heroism during World War II.

Beau Biden, who served in the Delaware Army National Guard and was awarded a Bronze Star for his service in Iraq from 2008 to 2009, died of cancer in 2015.
