Looking for fact checks during the last presidential debate?
During Monday night’s presidential debate between President Obama and Mitt Romney on foreign policy, we will again be posting live fact checks on The Washington Post’s Election 2012 Blog. We will have a full report on this Web page that will post in the wee hours of Tuesday.
Remember, if you hear something fishy, send a tweet to #FactCheckThis.
In the meantime, here are links to our fact checks of the first and second presidential debate and the vice presidential debate between Vice President Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan, as well as links to some of the key issues likely to come up in this debate. We are fairly certain some previously debunked claims will be repeated.

Lots of fishy facts were tossed around by Biden and the Republican vice presidential nominee, and we examined 18.
Some further digging into claims from the first two debates.
