Let me tell you a story

Back in 1999 or 2000 I was flying back to San Diego from Portland, Ore., aboard an Alaska Airlines jet when the plane was forced down in Los Angeles.

Sen. Joe Biden feels my pain.

"Ladies and gentlemen, where are we now? Where are we now?" Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., said to the National Guard Association today, talking about the war in Afghanistan.

"If you want to know where Al Qaeda lives, you want to know where Bin Laden is, come back to Afghanistan with me," Biden said. "Come back to the area where my helicopter was forced down, with a three-star general and three senators at 10,500 feet in the middle of those mountains. I can tell you where they are."

And now, to quote Paul Harvey, Jake Tapper tells you the rest of the story.

In February 2008, Biden -- along with Sens. John Kerry, D-Mass., and Chuck Hagel, R-Neb. -- was on a chopper that made an emergency landing in the mountains of Afghanistan.

A snowstorm had forced them down.

For the record, fog over Lindbergh Field forced my plane down.
