Michael Goldfarb has a list of 14 Biden lies.

Then there’s this from the Western Standard:

Biden is telling absurd lies about Afghanistan tonight.  In particular, he’s repeatedly claimed that “we’ve spent less in Afghanistan in seven years than we spend in a month in Iraq.”

He’s made that claim, or claims to that effect, repeatedly.  It is, to put it bluntly, a complete Goddamned lie.

According to the Congressional Research Service, spending on the war in Afghanistan since 2001 has been $172 Billion.  Spending in Iraq is, as the Democrats repeatedly mention, a little under $10 Billion a month.

In other words, Biden’s number is off by, oh, something like 2000%.  Perhaps Obama’s Sub-Committee ought to have held some hearings on Afghanistan after all.
