WHICH IS WHY IT WASN'T SURPRISING THEY ACKNOWLEDGED HE WAS LYING:

Is There a Double Agent in Ben Carson's Campaign? (Rob Garver, November 17, 2015, Fiscal Times)

How else to explain why, at a moment when foreign policy in general and Middle East policy in particular has taken center stage in the GOP primary race, Duane R. Clarridge would give an on-the-record interview to The New York Times saying that Carson seems unable to absorb key details about foreign policy issues?

"Nobody has been able to sit down with him and have him get one iota of intelligent information about the Middle East," Clarridge said of Carson in the explosive article published Tuesday afternoon.

On Sunday, after watching Carson stumble through a Fox News interview in which he appeared unable to name any U.S. allies willing to fight against ISIS, Clarridge told reporter Trip Gabriel that he called up Carson confidant Armstrong Williams and said, "We need to have a conference call once a week where his guys roll out the subjects they think will be out there, and we can make him smart."

Williams himself seemed to express frustration, telling Gabriel, "he's been briefed on it so many times. I guess he just froze."
