Former Vice President Joe Biden responded on Thursday to a Washington Post report that a military story he shared on the campaign "never happened" and said in an interview "I do not know what the problem is."
The Democratic leader's blunder occurred earlier this month when Biden told a story in a New Hampshire campaign ban that he called "God's Truth."
