Biden's Latest Gaffe: Russia Withdrawing From 'Fallujah'

By    |   Thursday, 10 November 2022 10:14 AM EST

President Joe Biden erred again in public, saying Russian troops were pulling out of "Fallujah" while answering a question about the Ukraine War.

Biden, 79, known for public gaffes, spoke after it was announced that troops had been ordered to retreat from Kherson, one of the only major cities Russia captured after its Feb. 24 invasion.

During a Wednesday press conference, Biden was asked if Ukraine would "compromise" with Russia to end the war.

"I think the context is that whether or not they're pulling back from Fallujah – from the city of Kherson – and [Russian forces] are coming back across the river to the eastern side of the [Dnieper] river," Biden said

In late 2004, the Iraqi city of Fallujah was the setting of the bloodiest urban conflict U.S. forces had fought since the Vietnam War. It's remembered as being a key moment in the invasion of Iraq.

Biden has a history of misspeaking.

One example came in October when he offered happy birthday wishes to Vice President Kamala Harris, referring to her as a "great president."

Earlier that month, Biden was mocked for spelling out "dot" in a website address that he read off a teleprompter.
