President Joe Biden’s recent recounting of his uncle’s fate has sparked intrigue and raised eyebrows across the nation. Twice this week, Biden shared a poignant narrative about his uncle, Ambrose Finnegan, a valiant soldier, implying that he was eaten by cannibals. However, the details he revealed diverged significantly from the official account.

During a visit to a war memorial in Scranton, Pennsylvania, Biden wove a vivid tale of his uncle’s heroism and tragedy. He spoke of Finnegan’s bravery as an Army Air Corps lieutenant, flying reconnaissance missions over the perilous war zones. Yet, it was the chilling revelation about Finnegan’s disappearance that captured headlines and imagination alike.

“My Uncle Bosie was a hell of an athlete,” Biden recounted, “but he got shot down in New Guinea, and they never found the body because there used to be − there were a lot of cannibals − for real − in that part of New Guinea.”

Plane crash but no cannibals?

However, Biden’s narrative clashed with the official report from the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA), which stated that Finnegan and his comrades perished in a plane crash off the New Guinea coast, with no mention of cannibalism.

The DPAA’s account described a harrowing ordeal of a doomed flight, where Finnegan and his fellow servicemen vanished without a trace, leaving behind unanswered questions and lingering sorrow. Yet, Biden’s vivid portrayal hinted at a darker fate, one shrouded in the shadows of jungle lore and ancient fears.

As speculation swirled, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre offered no clarification on the accuracy of Biden’s account, choosing instead to emphasize the President’s commitment to honoring veterans and their families.

But the lingering question remained: Did President Biden’s uncle truly fall prey to cannibals, or was it a tale woven from the threads of memory and imagination?
