President Joe Biden has once again repeated one of his most famous lies after he called the family of one of the soldiers who died in a drone strike last week.

Biden, while speaking to the parents of Spc. Kennedy Sanders, claimed that he lost his first son in Iraq. Sanders, 24, alongside Sgt. William Jerome Rivers, 46; and Spc. Breonna Alexsondria Mofett, 23, died in a drone strike orchestrated by an Iran-backed militia group.

“Oh well, I tell you what, it means a lot, a lot to me,” Biden said. “My son spent a year in Iraq, that’s how I lost him,” Biden continued. “1% of all these kids are the ones who take care of 99% of us.”

While Biden’s son, Beau, served in Iraq for a year, he did not die in Iraq as the president claimed. Beau died in May 2015 from glioblastoma, a type of cancer that starts as a growth of cells in the brain or spinal cord. Biden has, however, continued to claim that his son got cancer as a result of the toxic burn pits he was exposed to while serving in Iraq.

Biden came under fire last May for repeating the lie when he addressed the U.S. Marine Corps Air Station in Iwakuni, Japan.

“My son was a major in the U.S. Army. We lost him in Iraq,” Biden told the Marines.

The president also made the false claim in 2022, telling a crowd in Colorado that his son

lost his life in Iraq.

“I say this as a father of a man who won the Bronze Star, the Conspicuous Service Medal, and lost his life in Iraq,” Biden said while giving a speech near Vail, Colorado, where he designated Camp Hale as a national monument.

Biden repeated the same claim to the families of 13 U.S. Servicemen who were killed during the president’s failed Afghanistan withdrawal. Gold Star mother Cheryl Rex, whose son was one of the 13, revealed last August that Biden compared the loss of her son to his losing of Beau.

“His words to me were, ‘My wife, Jill, and I know how you feel. We lost our son as well and brought him home in a flag-draped coffin,’” Rex said. “My heart started beating faster and I started shaking, knowing that their son died from cancer and they were able to be by his side.”
