Biden in Tbilisi, adds heroic flair to night at restaurant

In address to the Georgian Parliament earlier today, Vice President Joe Biden recalled that last August he “sat on a rooftop of a restaurant with President Saakashvili, as sound of artillery fire and fighter aircraft punctuated the night.”

Biden in fact visited Tbilisi on August 17, 2008 almost a week after military operations were over. He is pictured with Georgian president and his wife at the time (and apparently on same rooftop).
