(CNN)Joe Biden may be out of the Presidential race, but his statements this week on the events that led to the death of Osama Bin Laden could change the narrative of that week. As part of a partnership with FactCheck.org, here's a look at his claim and how well it holds up with previous statements from Mr. Biden himself as well as from President Obama.
Fact checking Joe Biden's new retelling of the Osama Bin Laden raid
Is Joe Biden revising history or correcting it? We don't know for sure, but the vice president now says that he privately advised President Obama to approve the raid that killed Osama bin Laden — which is diametrically opposed to what Biden and Obama said in 2012.
Biden gave his revised version of history on Oct. 20 at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., where he was speaking about the legacy of former Vice President Walter Mondale. Biden recounted a meeting of the National Security Council on April 28, 2011. At that meeting, Obama asked each person for their opinion on whether the U.S. should raid the Abbottabad compound in Pakistan, where Bin Laden was believed to have been hiding.
