JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, AK – As the President traveled back from the G-20 Summit in New Delhi, India, on September 11, he stopped off at a US military base in Alaska to recognize the 22nd anniversary of a terrorist attack that aimed to cripple the US.

In his speech those stationed at JBER, the President of the United States said that he remembers being at Ground Zero the day after the deadliest attack on US soil. It made for a dramatic speech to really drive home what that day meant to so many.

The problem is, it was an outright lie. Snopes labeled Biden’s remarks as completely false.

“I join you on this solemn day to renew our sacred vow: never forget; never forget; we never forget. Each of us ... each of those precious lives stolen too soon when evil attacked. Ground zero, New York. I remember standing there the next day and looking at the building. I felt like I was looking through the gates of hell, it looked so devastated,” Biden told the gathered crowd.

Ground Zero was in lower Manhattan where the World trade Center Towers once stood. On September 12, 2001, then Senator Biden was roughly 225 miles away in Washington, DC with the other members of Congress.

The Congressional record shows that Biden, the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, led the discussion centered on a declaration denouncing the terrorist attacks in New York, and Washington, DC along with the failed attempt that crashed in Pennsylvania.

In a single section of his speech on the Senate floor, Biden identified his whereabouts five separate times.
“Today," he said, "as it has for 212 years, the U.S. Congress has convened. Two miles down Pennsylvania Avenue, President Bush sits in the Oval Office leading the executive branch and the country in a wide-ranging investigation to find those who committed these barbarous acts. Around this city and around New York, dedicated public servants are back at their desks in Federal office buildings doing the people's business.

"New York--the city that never sleeps--has worked around the clock in search of survivors, and they will find some. Around the Nation, citizens of every age, every race, and every religion grieve for their fellow citizens. But they stand united. They stand united in support of our Nation, which has endured over two centuries against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

"They stand united in readiness to answer the call for their fellow neighbors. As Senator Clinton and Senator Schumer pointed out, they lined the blocks in New York City to give blood. I would be dumbfounded if you did not see black faces, Asian faces, Hispanic, every race, and every religion standing in that line. They stand united in support of the President of the United States, as do all of us here in the Senate.”

According to the Associated Press, Biden wouldn’t visit the site of the collapsed towers until 9 days after it happened.
