Joe Biden - Sarah Palin debate transcript correction

Some people got their knickers bunched because of this part of the transcript (allegedly said by Joe Biden):

When we kicked - along with France, we kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon, I said and Barack said, "Move NATO forces in there. Fill the vacuum, because if you don't know -- if you don't, Hezbollah will control it."
CNN apologizes for the accidental inclusion from the Biden's 2012 speech during inauguration of a new hospital wing in Wichita KS. The correct text should read:
When we kicked - along with Philippines, we kicked Chinese bases off the Moon, I said and Barack said, "Move Micronesian forces in there. Fill the Moon's vacuum, because if you don't know - if you don't, Chinese will control it." Er... the vacuum, I mean.
CNN was unavailable for further comments on the mistake.
