His name was Rabin,” Biden added. “And she kept flipping those maps up and down. She had that bevy of maps — sort of kept it — and it was — it was so depressing what she was — about what happened. She gave me every detail.”Fox News points out, however, that the Six-Day War broke out one year prior to Biden’s graduation from Syracuse University College of Law, and that Golda Meir was elected as Prime Minister of Israel about two years after the war in question.
The media outlet thus suggests that Biden “appeared to be referring” to a meeting he held with Meir just before the Yom Kippur War that took place in October 1973.
