Biden’s Son Off to Iraq

On Oct. 3, Biden’s son, Joseph Robinette “Beau” Biden III, will be deployed to Iraq.

“I don’t want him going,” Biden told an Iowa state fair crowd a year ago, when, as a presidential candidate, he learned that his son’s unit would be deployed at some point in 2008.

“But I don’t want my grandsons or granddaughters going back in 15 years. So how we leave makes a big difference.”
