Raising his voice above the crowd, Thurman claimed that Biden had “blood on his hands” for his support of the war in Iraq.
“Why should we vote for someone who voted for a war that killed thousands of our brothers and sisters and countless Iraqi civilians?” he asked. “You enabled that war. You also gave a medal to the man who caused that war. That blood is on your hands as well.”
The exchange went viral as Biden expressed little patience or sympathy for the veterans’ plight.
