Ben Carson Says Muslim Civil Rights Group Has Ties to Terrorists
by Alan Rappeport
Ben Carson, the Republican presidential candidate who has been fading in the polls, accused a leading Muslim-American civil rights group of having ties to terrorists on Tuesday as he laid out a new national security plan.
As part of a seven-point proposal to fight terrorism, Mr. Carson called on the State Department to investigate the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the civil rights group that has been pushing back against Islamophobia in the United States.
"The Department of State should designate the Muslim Brotherhood and other organizations that propagate or support Islamic terrorism as terrorist organizations, and fully investigate the Council on American-Islamic Relations as an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood and a supporter of terrorism," Mr. Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, said in his plan.
