Carson Admits His Timeline On Meeting Westmoreland Is Wrong
For years, Ben Carson has said that he had dinner with General William Westmoreland on Memorial Day, a meeting that led to Carson’s claim he was offered a West Point scholarship. Now Carson says it may not have been Memorial day.
the leading GOP candidate did admit that his timeline about meeting General William Westmoreland on Memorial Day in 1969 and subsequently being offered a scholarship to West Point could be wrong.
“Well I know he [Westmoreland] was there in Detroit…You know it may not have been Memorial Day. But it was sometime during the time that I was the City Executive Officer.”
…Carson said this kind of scrutiny is born out of the “secular progressive movement in this country.”
He said he is a threat to that because he and his campaign are attracting a “a great diversity of people and it worries them.”
