BIDEN on AFGHANISTAN: ‘My Deceased Son Beau Served in Iraq for a Full Year’

Joe Biden addressed the American public Tuesday afternoon after completing the withdrawal of US Troops from the region, calling the mission an “extraordinary success.”

“I don’t think enough people understand how much we have asked of the 1% of this country who put that uniform on, willing to put their lives on the line in defense of our nation. Maybe it’s because my deceased son beau served in Iraq for a full year,” said Biden.
