Carson incorrectly taps Jefferson as Constitution craftsman

Carson errs on JeffersonRetired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, already under fire for his foreign policy acumen, is now being criticized for his grasp of history, particularly that of Thomas Jefferson.

In a C-SPAN interview broadcast Sunday, Carson praised Jefferson as a Founding Father who “tried to craft our Constitution in a way that it would control peoples’ natural tendencies and control the natural growth of the government.”

Jefferson, however, did not participate in the development of the U.S. Constitution during a 1787 convention.



President-elect Macri promises to reboot Argentine economy

The Road To The Paris Attacks Runs Through The Iraq War

Bush and Cheney, architects of warOne Middle East catastrophe apparently wasn't enough for some supporters of the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq. So they've continued to try to shape policy relating to the region, offering punditry in the wake of each fresh crisis.

It wasn't a surprise, then, that they seized on last week's tragic attacks in Paris to argue that the Islamic State group could only be eliminated by their preferred mode of U.S. intervention: large-scale troop deployment.

"If it takes 50,000 troops going in there and cleaning out Raqqa, the capital of the Islamic State, do it," Bill Kristol said on ABC two days after the attack.
