Biden confuses Syria-Libya three times. He also appears to boast that Russia's inability to "provid[e] for the basic economic needs of people" in Syria is a point of US leverage. I assume he means the US sanctions that, like Biden, US media won't mention. pic.twitter.com/j0ui5K10ht

- Ahead Of Putin Meeting, Biden Confuses Syria With Libya 3 Times In Less Than 90 Seconds
by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
A handful of what appears more than the usual Biden gaffes while on his Europe trip has some pundits raising yet more concerns about the 78-year old president’s cognitive decline in old age. Last year on the campaign trail a series of bizarre and questionable moments of “concern” – all caught on film – were dismissed in mainstream media as pro-Trump conspiracies.
During Sunday’s press conference concluding the G7 summit in Cornwall, England, Biden stumbled through a speech wherein he confused Syria for Libya three times in less than 90 seconds…
“We can work together with Russia – for example, in Libya. We should be opening up the passage to be able to go through, provide food assistance, and economic… I mean, vital assistance to a population that’s in real trouble,” he said, though clearly intending to mean Syria.
The Associated Press also took note of a “handful of verbal stumbles” Biden made throughout the G-7 weekend, after which he traveled to London – then on to Brussels where me met NATO leaders on Monday.
“At the news conference, Biden briefly confused Syria and Libya when he described the importance of providing humanitarian aid to countries torn apart by civil war. It was among a handful of verbal stumbles the president made,” AP wrote.
Jake Sullivan confirmed that Biden confused Syria and Libya three times in less than 90 seconds. Just be honest and watch this clip and decide for yourself.https://t.co/6fombKNtTh https://t.co/2GvGXfLojv
