Carson: China’s In Syria And ‘My Sources Are Better’ Than The White House
Ben Carson is trying to scare people by saying that China is now in Syria in spite of no evidence this is true.
Carson has claimed, based on his sources, that Chinese forces are operating in Syria. Asked on Thursday whether that is true, White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice said the U.S. has no evidence or intelligence suggesting that the Chinese are involved in Syria.
Appearing in South Carolina on Friday, Carson was given the opportunity to explain himself further.
“Actually, we’ll be releasing some material on that before the weekend is over,” Carson said in response to a question from a reporter. “I have several sources that I’ve gotten material from. I’m surprised my sources are better than [the Obama administration’s].”
