trying to do, get to the substantive issues. this is off subject. things that happened 45, 50 years ago, that's all -- >> why don't you get them out of the way and move on? >> as far as i'm concerned, they are out of the way. and let me just say one other thing. i do not remember this level of scrutiny for one president barack obama when he was running. in fact, i remember just the opposite. i remember people just, oh, we really don't talk about that. we won't talk about that relationship. well, marshal davis, we don't want to talk about that. bernadine dorn, ayers, he didn't really know them. all the thing that's jeremiah wright was saying, oh, that's not a problem. goes to okcollege doesn't do th well, somehow ends up as columbia university. his records are sealed? why? why aren't you interested in why
his records are sealed? let me ask you that. can somebody tell me why? >> why do you think they are? >> i'm asking why you're not interested in them being sealed. i'm asking you , will someone tell me, please, why you have not investigated that. i want to know. >> why are you raising it? >> because i want to know. you should want to know, too. wait a minute. hold on one minute. one second here. now, you're saying that something that happened with the words a scholarship was offered is a big deal but the president of the united states' academic records being sealed is not important? tell me how there's equivalency there. doesn't matter where it is. that's a silly argument. tell me how there's equivalency. tell me how there's equivalence there. somebody tell me, please. because, you see, what you're not going to find with me is
somebody who's just going to sit back and let you be completely unfair without letting the american people know what's going on. and the american people are waking up to your games. >> dr. carson, south florida times, do you think that there would have been this level of scrutiny about your so-called violent past if you hadn't brought it up yourself? like if they had found this information out beforehand, before you disclosed it? do you think it would be treated the same? >> let me put it this way. if everybody here will sign an affidavit saying that, if i reveal the name of the person involved in this stabbing incident that you will be singing my praises and none of this stuff will ever go on again, i'll think about it. will you do that? yes? yes? yes? yes? >> dr. carson, we're trying to ask questions and vet --
>> well, my job is to call you out when you're unfair, and i'm going to continue to do that. >> is the book accurate? you're saying this is just one thing? >> what is just the one thing? >> when you use the term -- >> what about the west point thing is false? what is false about it? >> you're saying it's one thing. is everything else in the book accurate? >> as far as i know it's accurate, yes. >> do you feel like it was dishonest or not? >> wait a minute. hold on. >> donald trump tweeted out very soon after this came out that this is one of many lies of dr. ben carson and it's a big story. what would be your response? >> what would you expect donald trump to say, somebody who's running neck in neck with him? what would you expect him to say? >> for somebody to say it's dishonest, the reports have been that you said you received a full scholarship. >> i never said i received a full scholarship. wait a minute. wait a minute. don't lie. i never said that i received a full scholarship. nowhere did i say that. >> there haven't reports made -- >> politico, as you know, told a
bold-faced lie. they've been called out by that by "the washington post" and "new york times" and i'm sure several others will call them out on that because there are actually some people with integrity in your business. >> you just toll me that you got a scholarship offer. you just said that. >> she said i got a scholarship. i never said i got a scholarship. i had people who said, yes, that i could get a scholarship to west point. and i told them that i wasn't interested, that i was going to pursue medicine. >> dr. carson -- >> -- did you make a mistake the way you characterized this? >> i don't think so. i think it's perfectly clear. i think there are people who want to make it into a mistake. i'm not saying it's a mistake. forgot about it. >> dr. carson, all the information about the violent past, why is that so important? why is that important for your back grund? >> it's important to me because it was the transformation for me. that's when i became a person who really understood the power of god in a person's life.
and it created a whole new relationship between me and god at that point. >> moving forward, why we're here tonight, the african-american vote, is that important to you? are you doing a good enough job in the polling? would you like to see it go up? >> it's a very important demographic. all demographics i think are very important. >> you've been listening to dr. ben carson speaking to reporters there live in florida. this is the most ant mated, agitated, alive you have seen dr. ben carson. he was taking questions from reporters and passionately fighting back about reports that have questioned his personal history. among them, you just heard him talking about west point. he had said that he had been told he could get a scholarship there. there was a report today that said that he did not get a scholarship. and he's saying that he's standing by his side of the
story. our sun land sur fahd did i is in the room with dr. carson now. you saw sha shot go down. we'll talk to her in a moment. i waupt to go now to our politicalthá reporter maeve r. in terms of the specifics here on this best point story, the story of the day, he referenced, it politico reporting that he said he got a scholarship there, they are saying it's untrue, he didn't. he's standing by his version, which is someone told him he could get a scholarship if he wanted one. standing by his story, does it add up to you? >> well, i'm looking right here at dr. carson's book "gifted hands." just to read you a quick sentence, he said, later i was offered a full scholarship to west point. i didn't refuse the scholarship outright but i let them know that a military career was not where i was going. so he has written about this in his book. he explained to the "new york times" today that it was an informal offer that was made to him or that he understood it to be an informal offer and that's
what he saw him trying to clarify just there in the press conference. so i guess the public is going to have to take a look at his book and what he said about it in the past and make up their own minds. >> and also, maeve, he's very, very strenuously responding to other reports, your reporting. you went to detroit where he grew up, a big part of his story is that he hit people with bats and hammers, at one point tried to stab someone. that's in the book you have there. you went to talk to people he knew when he was young. they were unable to corroborate that. he's fighting back very strenuously tonight. what did you -- did it put any of your questions that you have raised to rest? >> well, you know, we had heard from the campaign earlier tonight that actually there would be someone coming forward over the weekend who would be able to corroborate some of these violent incidents that he's talked about that were more than 50 years ago when he was a
teenager. my colleague scott glover and i set out to find people who knew him during those years to paint a portrait of those years in detroit and this very pivotal moment in his life, as he said, where he had all of these acts of violence and hitting people with bricks and bats but then had this moment of divine intervention that cured him. and he said it kept him from ever having a violent outburst again. when we went to talk to people in detroit and his classmates, we could find no one who had any recollection of those incidents with the exception of one person who said that they may have heard a vague rumor about it at the time. we talked to people he knew in elementary school, junior high school, all the way through. and they just said that this didn't square with the quiet, calm, collected person that they knew. >> right. so maeve, i want to play for you something that he just said moments ago so that those of you
who are just tuning in you may have missed what we just saw from dr. carson. i want to say this is pretty stunning. this is not the ben carson we have ever seen before. this is annage stated -- he was angry. he was showing his disgust, frankly, i think is the right word for his feeling for the reporting. but, maeve, let me play for you what he just said. explaining his side of the west point story. again, everybody, this is about whether he said he was offered a scholarship to west point, whether he lied about that because the offer he now says was an informal one. here's what he just said. >> it was an offer to me. it was specifically made -- >> you interpreted it as an offer? >> i interpreted it as an offer. i made it very clear in my -- >> who -- >> i don't remember the names of the people. it's almost 50 years ago. i bet you don't remember all the people you talked to 50 years ago. but, anyway, you know, they told me this was available to me
because of my accomplishments and that they would be delighted for me to do it. >> maeve, i know you're saying, look, the american people will need to look what he writes in the book, where he says hes had the offer, now his explanation. on some level, though, this would seem to add up, right, if he's a young african-american man from detroit, he has a meeting with someone from west point. they say, look, you can come here if you want. please come here. that he would interpret that as an offer, right? >> yeah, absolutely. you know, we talked to west point today, one of my colleagues, and they said that this very well could have happened, some kind of informal conversation that he interpreted in this way. but also that they would have no records at this point of how far that process went, et cetera. so we're still trying to track
down the details on this. i will say, you know, when it comes to the violent incidents, the reason why this has been such a story of interest this week is because his version of events has changed over time. you know, he said yesterday for the first time that two of the people he attacked he's described as jerry and bob he now says those were fictitious names. that's why cnn couldn't find the people who were involved in those incidents. and part of our biggest question tonight is, you know, why the campaign wouldn't want to just cooperate with us in putting some of these people forward for us to talk to. this is obviously an issue of temperament and something that is a big part of his life story, and we are looking forward to talking to those people so we do hope they emerge over the weekend as his campaign has suggested. >> thank you very much, maeve. i want to go to sunlen. she'll be with us in a moment. she was actually in the room with dr. carson as he was
speaking now. as i said, incredibly animated, calling the questions that have been raised about his life story a bunch of lies. sunlen is with me now in that very room. no, we don't have her. when we get her, we'll bring her to you. we're going to take a brief break, though. when we come back, our other major breaking news, investigators now convinced it was a bomb that took down metro jet flight 9268. and with increasing evidence that the bomb on board was hidden in the cargo hold, we're going to go inside that hold. we'll be back. 40% of the streetlights in detroit, at one point, did not work. you had some blocks and you had major thoroughfares and corridors that were just totally pitch black. those things had to change.
we wanted to restore our lighting system in the city. you can have the greatest dreams in the world, but unless you can finance those dreams, it doesn't happen. at the time that the bankruptcy filing was done, the public lighting authority had a hard time of finding a bank. citi did not run away from the table like some other bankers did. citi had the strength to help us go to the credit markets and raise the money. it's a brighter day in detroit. people can see better when they're out doing their tasks, young people are moving back in town, the kids are feeling safer while they walk to school. and folks are making investments and the community is moving forward. 40% of the lights were out, but they're not out for long.they're coming back. [eerie music] i am the ghost of cookies' past...residue. oh...so gross. well, you didn't use pam. so it looks like you're stuwith me! bargain brand cooking spray leaves annoying residue. that's why there's pam.
i accept i'm not the rower i used to be.. i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but i won't accept is getting out there with less than my best. so if i can go for something better than warfarin, i will. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus it had significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both. that really mattered to me. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical
or dental procedures. i accept i don't have to set records. but i'm still going for my personal best. and for eliquis. reduced risk of stroke plus less major bleeding. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. it's a housewife who's in control of the finances. actually, any wife, husband, or human person can use progressive's name your price tool to take control of their budget. and while the men do the hard work of making money, she can get all the car insurance options her little heart desires. or the women might do the hard work of making money. [ chuckling ] women don't have jobs. is this guy for real? modernizing car insurance with -- that's enough out of you! the name your price tool, only from progressive. where is your husband? breaking news. officials say they are now sure a bomb took down metro jet 9268
killing all 224 people on board. the black boxes are recovered. they're saying categorically the crash was not an accident. authorities say the cockpit voice recorder show there's was an explosion. the flight data recorder confirms that the explosion was not an accident. we now know everything was normal for the first 24 minutes of the flight and in a fraction of a second an explosion and then silence. also tonight, russia's president vladimir putin in an about-face suspending all air traffic with egypt, this after the u.s. and uk shared intelligence with russia's anti-terror committee. it's a major admission since russia had refused to acknowledge mounting evidence of a bomb. rene marsh begins our report. >> new clues are emerging from the moment the russian passenger plane broke apart. now, as officials become more and more convinced that this was a bomb on board and as officials also zero in on the moments
before that passenger plane took off, u.s. transportation officials are tightening security at airports around the world where u.s.-bound flights originate. investigators analyzing the metro jet black boxes say sounds of an explosion can be heard on the cockpit voice recorder. and according to french media, those investigators say, with confidence, that did not stem from a technical failure. tonight, focus remains on egypt's sharm el sheikh airport where the metro jet aircraft departed. british intelligence officials believe an insider at the airport may have planted a bomb in the plane's cargo hold right next to the aircraft's fuel line according to the bbc. that intelligence triggered dramatic new measures for many international flights leaving egypt. several carriers have banned passengers in egypt from bringing anything from carry-on bags on board, forcing them to
leave checked luggage behind. >> we're glad that the government is putting in security measures for us. >> reporter: overseas airports with direct flights to the united states are preparing for increased security measures. >> good afternoon, everybody. >> reporter: today homeland security secretary jeh johnson announced security. travelers will likely see random searches, extra hand swabbing and possibly more bomb sniffing dogs. dhs will also assess security at select foreign airports. >> when we talk about the shoe bomber, underwear bomber, the printer cartridges, these all happened overseas but they were flights coming into the u.s. so that's really from my perspective where the concern is. >> reporter: u.s. officials stress there are already multiple layers of security to screen passengers before they ever get on a plane bound for the u.s., including checking all passengers and crew against the u.s. terror watch list.
but vulnerabilities still exist. the insider threat is a major concern. >> employee vetti inting needs beefed up. one of the things they need to do in addition to that when they hire individuals they need to continue to vet them on a recurring basis to make sure if they go bad during the course of their time as an employee we catch it before it's too late. >> reporter: intelligence officials say if the downing of metro jet was an insider job, authorities worldwide must zero in on airport and airline workers with secure access. russia pulled flights to egypt after it reviewed u.s. and british intelligence, but it is worth noting, even though a bomb on board is the leading theory now, there is still no conclusive evidence. of course, that could come from the wreckage if they find some bomb residue. >> thank you, rene. now to the airport in sharm el sheikh where tens of thousands of tourists are trying to leave but only a few planes
are cleared as safe to fly. nemma, what is the scene like this there tonight? >> reporter: erin, it's just gone past 2:00 a.m., and still tourists hoping to make their way home are being bussed out of this airport. for many, this has just been an extraordinarily grueling day. we've seen bus load after bus load, many returning back to their hotels, disappointed. just to give you a sense of the sheer scale of this operation, and this is before president putin announced that his nationals would have to be brought home, that the russians would be expected to be fa i will is tated on their way back home to russia, britain alone had 29 flights scheduled to come in and out to evacuate their holiday makers. only 8 managed to leave. so that's still an extraordinary number of holiday makers who believe they are not being communicated with effectively and fundamentally, erin, tell us they're actually quite afraid
given that nobody really knows what's going on here. >> nema, thank you very much. live at sharm el sheikh airport, tens of thousands of people stranded there. joining me now, former cia counterterrorism official phil mud and our aviation lead correspondent richard quest. thanks to both of you. richard, what did investigators hear that has them in their wores categorically convinced that a bomb brought the plane down? >> i blif what they heard is an explosion, a noise, a scintilla, the very smallest amount of noise, but they were able to identify it as being that of an explosion. now, whether from a bomb or otherwise, they say they believe it's a bomb. they tha's the bit that's not, if you like the final part. but we've seen this before. mh-17 there was just the smallest amount of audio before the power was cut to the voice recorder, and they were able to identify it. we heard it again on twa-800. the idea is not new, but the fact that they have been able to isolate it this quickly would
suggest that it may be slightly longer than just a milly second. then cross-check that back with the flight data recorder to see if there's anything going wrong. are you seeing systems failing? >> they found no mechanical anything, which is how they get the explosion. >> nothing. >> and the bomb. the categorical conclusion. phil, british officials have said that the explosive device they believe was placed in the cargo hold. that's what they're saying. if that's the case, do you think they already have an idea of who did it? >> i think a vague idea. you're touching on what the next stage of this event is. in my experience, there's basically three stages. the first is disinformation. a lot of bad information about what happened. the second is starting to realize the facts, we're starting to understand days in that the plane was taken down by a bomb. the third is blowing out the investigation to start asking who exactly is responsible. at least four categories of people. you mentions one, the people who are actually the individuals placing the bomb on the plane. the second, who are the visionary leaders who said,
we're going to go after the head of the snake, that is, the russians? third, who are the operational commanders for the actual execution of the operation? and then who's the bomb maker? sta so start the hunt for the people manufacture now no one is allowed to check luggage out of sharm. they have worries. >> the british planes are going in with the hold sealed up, the luggage being taken from the passengers and will be transported back to the uk by the raf. >> military jets. >> right. one of the problems they've got in sharm now is all these people checking in and tons and tons of luggage sitting in storerooms they haven't taken away yet. >> which of course creates more opportunity to tamper with the luggage. you're saying they're actually sealing the cargo holds of the planes that are carrying people home. >> yes. >> that's an incredible
statement. there's a new video from isis in syria, richard. they are celebrating, they have graphics of a plane going up in flames. we are familiar with the fact that they have a video of a plane which they say is this plane. what do you make of this video? >> i'm interested in this bit here. i don't know why they've suddenly thrown the a-380 in there and then cut to a metro jet. i don't know what the purpose -- >> an airbus 321. >> the relevant plane is a 321, but they then throw this much larger picture of an a-380, the super jumbo. i don't understand the purpose of that since every other picture is of the a-321. >> is that just poor production in your view, or is that some sort of a statement about what they're planning? >> it seems -- well, the 380 is a much bigger kettle of fish, so to speak. but the video is just typical propaganda that one might expect at this sort of stage, vis-a-vis the video which of course is much more serious.
>> now, let me ask you, phil. we now know the russians have stopped all flights as well, right? they had been in the corner with the egyptians for a while, saying don't rush to judgment, we don't know. they changed their tune today. >> yes. >> and pretty aggressively so. they're not flying in. they said it was because they had gotten information from the united states. >> yes. >> that must mean the information is pretty significant, that the russians would admit that they're going to stop flying and that it's because of information they got from the americans. >> yeah. let's take the politics off the table. you have the egyptians initially and russians saying for various reasons, national embarrassment, for example, tourism dollar, don't jump to judgment. the professionals now, intelligence professionals are coming to the table, decades of experience following the isis target saying, this is the kind of information we've intercepted. i'm going to guess there ace a fair amount of detail. when people die, national borders disappear. i can't sit there with the russians saying, i'm not going to share wu. there's got to be conversation about what happened. the interesting conversation i would want to know about is, now
we both, that is the americans, russians along with the egyptians, want to hunt who's on the ground who did this. do we start sharing information down the road to say, we want to jointly target this group? that would be revolutionary. >> quickly, tomorrow the egyptians have a press conference. this is the moment -- >> their first. they have been silent. >> absolutely. this is the moment. do they start saying, put up or shut up? is this a moment we get transparency? do they finally recognize that the obviousness of the position they now face? >> we will see. that would be impressive if it happened. thank you very much, both of you. "outfront" next, what kind of bomb could have taken down flight 9268? we have a special report on that next. ...isn't it time to let the... ...real you shine... ...through? introducing otezla, apremilast. otezla is not an injection, or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently.

was as long as the boat. for seven hours, we did battle. until i said... you will not beat... meeeeee!!! greg. what should i do with your fish? gary. just put it in the cooler. if you're a fisherman, you tell tales. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. put the fish in the cooler!
i love working in the salinas area becauseriselda zendejas. i always wanted to do something where i could help people around me. so being a construction supervisor for pg&e gives me the opportunity to give a little bit back to my community. i have three boys. they're what keep me going every day. our friends, families live in the area. and it is important for all of us that we keep our community safe. together, we're building a better california.
did a major about-face suspending all air traffic after intelligence was shared with him from the u.s. and uk. matthew chance is "outfront" from moscow. matthew, for russians to do an about-face, we were just talking about this with the formatter cia operative phil mudd. this must be very clear and a big deal, this intelligence. >> yeah, absolutely. american and british intelligence according to the kremlin official i spoke to earlier on this evening. clearly it was enough, big enough, for them to do an about-face like you say, but also to ban flights, not just from the sinai peninsula or shafrm el shake but from the whole of egypt. they suspended all air operations to and from egypt. it gives the suggestion that there is the possibility of a continued threat towarrussian airliners from that country. so they're going to be embarking on a process now they've probably already started of narrowing the threat down and do a proper risk assessment to get the flights back running again.
but at the moment, the. >> emily: fis is on banning the flights and getting the 50,000 russians who are in egypt right now back home. it will be a bit logistical problem. >> matthew chance, thank you so much live from moscow. we should say the banning of flights from egypt, the dutch airline klm now says no luggage can be checked from cairo. this is the biggest country in the middle east, a major statement about the fears of security there, the fear of the rise of isis. the big question, of course, is what kind of bomb could have brought down the jet? miguel marquez has a special "outfront" report. >> reporter: finding a bomb that's already exploded in this? not an easy task. but one a thorough investigation should find. >> every one one of these bombings has a distinct signature. once you can put it together and link it back to a group or an individual, that's the ultimate goal here. >> reporter: for years, terrorists have sought new ways to bring down commercial jet aircraft, from bombs hidden in shoes to liquid containers, even
underwear. in the case of metro jet 9268, u.s. officials suspect a conventional bomb, like this one shown in this test of plastic explosives. officials believe the bomb was placed in the cargo hold of the a-321 along with other luggage. one big question, how would such a device be detonated? jim maxwell was a bomb technician for the fbi. >> switches that turn your refrigerator light on and off is the type of switch that could be used in this type of setting. vapor switches which measure the changes in air density inside a room. or you could use a timer off your watch or your phone. >> reporter: this government computer model based on several explosions shows how a small hole blasted through a pressurized cabin can be devastating. >> what happens is, what engineers call the zimmer effect. you could blow a hole in a plane the size of, say, a volleyball or basketball, a plane going 500, 600 miles an hour will
depressurize, and that hole will continue down the length of the plane. >> reporter: images of flight 9268 indicate a midair breakup, the tail section three miles from the main debris field. in the wreckage, you can make out the wings, the fuselage in front, noticeably missing the back of the passenger jet. in december 1988, pan am flight 103 was brought down by a suitcase bomb placed in a container with other luggage. the plastic explosives set on a timer exploded over lockerbie, scotland. the blast punched a 20-inch hole in the plane's left side just in front of the wings, the 747 disintegrated seconds after the blast. the plane's nose tore away. 259 on board and 11 people on the ground died. investigators eventually found pieces of the luggage that carried the bomb and a small fragment of a circuit board used as the timer, most importantly.
>> this type of investigation is a lot of sifting and probing and testing, and that one little piece of evidence is the linchpin sometimes to making sense of it. >> reporter: tiny but critical clues to solve an enormous mystery. >> so reverse engineering of bombing very, very difficult to do. the hope is as they've done in many cases is find the tiny fragment that could lead them to the suitcase, suitcase lead them to a manufacturer or retailer, that could lead them to the person that bought it, the bomb maker or the group that planned the entire thing. of course, all of this depends on the quality of the investigation and we come back to all eyes on egypt. erin? >> miguel, thank you very much. "outfront" now, the former cia operatie ivive bob baer. miguel's report fits with what you've said this week, it could be a small bomb, a couple of ounces perhaps, that could bring down a jet of this size. what kind of bomb do you think was responsible? >> well, if these guys knew what they were doing, they used a
hybrid explosive, that means ones that ripped as jimmy was saying. it opens up the side of an airplane, the zipper effect. doesn't take much explosives. if they wanted to make sure the plane went down, they could get it around security and have a baggage handler simply put it in the tail of the plane, use a lot of explosives to make sure the plane came down. weather whether it was a vapor or barometric switch i don't think we'll ever know. i have to emphasize how easy this is once you've got staff on the ground to get a bomb on and blow a plane up. i mean, you don't need a suicide bomber. you don't need any fancy equipment. and the rest of it, what scares me, is the islamic state has managed to -- i mean, they understand this and they know that the same sort of security weaknesses exist in europe and the united states. what should worry us now is whether they might try something in this country because a lot of staff we have on the ground is
contract. >> so let me just ask you, do you think they have more of these bombs that are ready, that are built? >> erin, you and i could go out tonight, get the equipment and if we had explosives it would be very easy. we could have a bomb by tomorrow morning, a working bomb tested, the circuitry and the rest of it. it's very easy, the technology is widespread through the middle east. you know, we were picking up in the '70s and '80s and so forth. they've only gotten more sophisticated. you can take the detonators the size of an eraser on the pencil. very hard to detect. >> the video from isis in syria, it flashes to an a-380, the largest jet in the world, an airbus, then it shows the a-321. richard quest was saying he believes that use of the a-3 tate shot is purposeful, perhaps indicating what is next. what do you say? >> you know, reading the tea leaves with the islamic state,
all i know is they want to kill as many of us as they can. united states is on the target list not just russia. >> thank you very much, bob baer. "outfront" next, ben carson, more animated, emotional than we have seen him yet, defending himself passionately, charging that reporters are out to get him, saying that there are lies out there. that's next. ♪ reddi-wip.

tonight ben carson lashing out at the media as he faces growing questions about his past. moments ago carson visibly arrangery as he criticized rotors for asking about what he called violent behavior as a child and an offer to attend west point. >> wait a minute. hold on one minute. one second here. now, you're saying that something that happened with the words "a scholarship was offered" is a big deal but the president of the united states, his academic records being sealed is not? wait a minute. tell me -- tell me how there's equivalency there. doesn't matter where it is. >> it's in your book. >> that's a silly argument.
tell me how there's equivalence there. tell me, somebody. please. >> sunlen serfaty is live where dr. carson was. sunlen, i can say sitting here that's a side of ben carson we haven't seen before. >> reporter: erin, i can tell you in that room there was a lot of anger from ben carson tonight. he was very combative, much more aggressive than we've ever seen him, really taking on these questions and very clear that all of these questions about his past are certainly getting under his skin. and what he's trying to do is really redirect a lot of that fire on to the media, put the attention on the media. he suggested point-blank tonight, he called it a witch hunt. he said there are people who are desperate to tarnish his record. so certainly trying to channel some of that anger and redirect some of that anger, even bringing up and calling into
question barack obama's record, mengi i mentioning some controversial relationships he's had in his past, specifically mentioning jeremiah wright, bill ayers, saying there haven't been question bz these characters answered in barack obama's life. he did, though, reveal an important hint. he intimated that perhaps sometime soon one of the identities of these classmates or people in his life that he had involved in these violent incidents might be revealed. erin? >> sunlen, thank you very much. sunlen who's been covering this campaign is talking about this is the first time she's seen him like this. "outfront" now, the political commentator ben ferguson along with katrina pierson, actively tweeting and commenting on the ben carson embroil leo today. ben, you just saw dr. ben carson there, more emotional, more engaged, more passionate than the american public and voting public has seen him so far this
campaign. does that work? has he put this to rest? >> well, i would be livid if i was him. this is nothing but an incredibly vile hit piece. when someone comes to you, ask any student athlete when they're recruited by different universities, people come to you without an official piece of paper and say, the university of "x" want uz. we want you to come here. we want to get you here. is that a scholarship offer? any student athlete would say yes, it is. >> right. that's how he's saying it happened. >> right. >> he said he was offered sol arship. >> right. >> i'm making sure everyone understands. the subjective nature of saying, he was offered, does that mean it was formal or verbal or something? >> ask michael jordan how many college scholarships he had that were offered to him? most of them were not in writing, but if he wrote a book he would say, not only did unc go after me but all these other universities. and to somehow say that's not officially correct? look, ben carson was a really smart young man. you could even say kid.
he knew he wanted to be a doctor. he went all his eggs in one basket to one university, yale. if you can get into yale and get accepted, i think it's pretty obvious we're not asking if he was lying about his qualifications and somehow he wasn't qualified to go to west point. >> right. >> this may be one of the most vile attacks ever i've seen on a candidate and it's embarrassing. >> katrina, do you agree? ben raises a lot of fair points. >> vile attack? no one has called him a racist. >> yes, vile. you're calling him a liar. >> i'm not going to yell, but what i will say is, welcome to running for president. he's being asked questions, ben. this is all that he has to run on. he's being asked very simple questions. and you just saw him come apart just on asking questions about -- >> he didn't come apart, katrina. >> regardless of semantics, like erin said, regardless whether it was he was offered a scholarship or interpreted as a scholarship, that's not really what's at question here. what's in question -- >> sure it is. >> ben carson is running on his
story and the media is asking questions. >> katrina, let me -- >> let me play one more sound bite when he was asked about whether these questions, in particular about the scholarship at west point, were fair. here's dr. carson. >> i don't think it's relevant at all, but i think what it shows and these kinds of things show is that there is a desperation on behalf of some to try to find a way to tarnish me because they have been looking through everything. they have been talking to everybody i've ever known, everybody i've ever seen. there's got to be a scandal. there's got to be some nurse he's had an affair with. there's got to be something. they are getting desperate. so next week it will be my kindergarten teacher who said i peed in my pants. it's ridiculous. but it's okay because i totally expect it. >> ben, is this going to endear him more to voters? >> yes, it's going to endear him more because i think people realize this is nothing but a political hit job trying to take down a man that went to an incredible university and was
recruited by west point. this is semantics. this is exactly what i expect from the trump campaign to come after him and try to blow this into a bigger story. i would say to them, stay classy just for once. a little classy. >> katrina? >> these are questions, ben. they're not being blown up. simple questions. and yes, the base might stay behind him as long as this is where it ends. >> all right, thank you both very much.
