Ben Carson's Mostly False claim about Benghazi and Hillary Clinton

In Ben Carson’s playbook, a good defense is a good offense.

Media reports have raised questions about Carson’s account of being violent as a child and whether he was offered a West Point scholarship. So the retired neurosurgeon got a question on his biography at the Nov. 10 debate.

"Are you worried your campaign -- which you've always said, sir, is bigger than you -- is now being hurt by you?" asked Fox Business Network debate moderator Neil Cavuto.

Carson switched the topic to call Hillary Clinton a liar for her comments as secretary of state about the attack in Benghazi.

"When I look at somebody like Hillary Clinton, who sits there and tells her daughter and a government official that no, this was a terrorist attack, and then tells everybody else that it was a video. … Where I came from, they call that a lie."
