Ben Carson: Will Be Quicker to Respond to Attacks

 Ben Carson: Will Be Quicker to Respond to Attacks

GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson says he will be much quicker to respond to attacks in the coming year — especially when they are false.

"We have taken a nonchalant attitude towards that, I think that's the wrong thing to do," Carson said Sunday on "Face the Nation."  "You'll see much more aggressiveness in that region."

Carson pointed to the charges he was never violent as a youth as he claimed in his autobiography. Perhaps, he said, he should take that as a compliment, but he added that when articles turned up that proved his case, no one ever apologized.

And no apologies have been forthcoming from other charges, he said.

"I think we have to be the ones who forcefully inject that into the narrative," he said.

Carson said he has led the discussion on foreign policy, and others are just now catching up to him.

"And right now I'm talking about the fact that we cannot be distracted by Iraq and Syria only," he said. "We need to recognize what is going on in Libya. Libya represents an incredible caliphate for [the Islamic State.] It has a lot of oil, you go north across the water you're into southern Europe, you go south you're into Chad and Sudan and Niger."

Carson brushed aside questions his campaign staff might see a shakeup.

When host John Dickerson asked what his friend and adviser Armstrong Williams meant when he said that Carson is backing in charge of his campaign, Carson replied, "I think you have to ask Armstrong. I prefer he speak for himself. I'll speak for myself."
