Al: Here are the times Biden cited events that never happened: Biden claimed twice he met with Parkland, Florida, shooting survivors when he was Vice President. He was out of office when the attack took place. Biden claims his helicopter was “forced down” in Afghanistan, close to Osama bin Laden’s lair. While running for president. Biden told the United Mine Workers that he was a coal miner. The line was plagiarized from a speech by British politician Neil Kinnock. Biden claimed he was “shot at” during the Iraq War while visiting the Green Zone. Biden called Slobodan Miloševic a “damn war criminal” to his face - but only in a book he authored. Biden claimed he participated in sit-ins at segregated restaurants and movie theaters. Biden claimed he criticized President George W. Bush in private meetings at the Oval Office. But Bush aides told Fox News in 2009 that they couldn't recall any private meetings between Biden and the president. Biden was forced to drop out of the 1998 presidential race after it was discovered he exaggerated his academic record, plagiarized a law school essay, and stole politicians quotes for his speeches without any attribution.
