Biden made the slip-up when holding up his daily schedule, which he said has daily updates on US troop deaths overseas.
“U.S. troops died in Iran and Afghanistan, 6,000, as of today, 923,” the former vice president and ex-senator, who voted for the Iraq War, said. “Not roughly 6,900 — 923, because every one of these fallen angels left behind a family, left behind a community. There is an empty seat at that table now.”

This is the second time Cluess Joe has mixed up the two countries in a speech.
In January, while addressing foreign policy dementia Joe referred to Iran twice when talking about a vote in Iraq’s parliament.

Joe Biden: I Was Against The Iraq War Before I Was For It
Despite being fact-checked in January 2020, twice in the last five weeks, Joe Biden has claimed that despite voting to authorize the war in Iraq in 2002, he claimed that he opposed the Iraq war from “the moment” it began.
Even CNN couldn’t cover for old Joe for his ridiculousness, which forced Biden to backtrack, claiming he misspoke.
Biden did call his 2002 vote a “mistake” beginning in 2005. But he endorsed the invasion right before and after it occurred, did so again in public remarks later in 2003, and continued to argue into 2004 that the US should keep up the fight in Iraq.
Wow, an Air Force vet calls Biden out for voting for the Iraq War
