But that wasn't the first time Biden had exaggerated his "dangerous" foreign exploits. Last year during a debate, when he was still running for the Democrats' presidential nomination, Biden claimed that he had been "shot at" while in the Green Zone in Iraq. He wasn't. In reality, "some sort of projectile 'landed' outside a building where he and another senator had spent the night." (Link to Fox News story here.)
Apparently Joe Biden wants to paint himself as an action hero - James Bond on a fact-finding mission. Should we call him Double Oh Joe?
