Never mind that the right-wing attacks on the administration concerning Benghazi have been discredited. According to Ben Carson, no one will want to defend America anymore.

Carson, who has continued writing a weekly column for the far-right outlet WorldNetDaily even after announcing his campaign for president. Writing in WND today, Carson claims that the military will not be able to continue its proud tradition because leaders “abandon[ed] them as they did in Benghazi and [said] it was too dangerous and too late to risk rescue efforts.”

“Why would soldiers in the future take on heroic risks for a nation that would be willing to abandon them when the going gets tough?” Carson writes. “These kinds of dishonest and cowardly decisions will have deleterious effects on the future of our nation.”

Carson also criticizes Harry Reid, whose last name he misspells at times as “Reed,” to claim that his attacks on Mitt Romney during the 2012 election represented “inappropriate internal warfare” and were likely “met with glee by the jihadists and others wishing to destroy our nation and our culture.”

In the end, Carson writes, “we must learn to stop fighting each other and recognize that many of the issues over which we constantly squabble are not Republican or Democratic issues, but rather are pro-American and anti-American issues.”

Perhaps Mr. Carson should stop fighting first to see how it feels.

    Imagine how they felt after Beirut, then.

      He probably would have no idea what you’re talking about since his sense of history began yesterday.

        That’s a child’s sense of history. If it didn’t happen while they were paying attention, it didn’t happen.

    So he is saying since the Benghazi situation, the military has not acted heroically?

      I wonder what Benghazi has to do with it anyway. Two guards got killed. Out of how many?
      60 got killed while Bush was in office and several embassies were attacked, most of those killed were military.

        Benghazi is all they have and they are hoping it will win them some votes, especially since Hillary can get all those “illegals” to vote for her….somehow they can vote, not sure how but according to the right they can.

    Ben Carson sticks his head up his own ass so often you’d think he was a retired proctologist

    “we must learn to stop fighting each other…”

    After insulting Obama, he says this?? And the dummy, of course, makes no mention of the terrorists taken out by the military. And he misspells Harry Reid’s name like some of the teahadists posting on websites?

    Ben, this ain’t brain surgery. And that’s why you’re so awful at it.

    keep it real Ben !

    And unfortunately there is no shortage of either.

    WND Birther Ben Carson’s other source similarly said: People “can’t go fishing anymore because of Obama.”— Rush Limbaugh. Pants on Fire! Rusty and Ben’s statements remain 0% True!
