Ben Carson Never Applied to West Point, Campaign Says

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson has been caught red-handed in a lie.

Previously, Carson suggested in his book, Gifted Hands, that he had applied to the prestigious military academy West Point in his youth.

Investigative journalism and comments from West Point have revealed that Carson never applied to the academy and that the whole story is fabricated.

“He was introduced to folks from West Point by his ROTC Supervisors,” Carson campaign manager Barry Bennett told Politico. “They told him they could help him get an appointment based on his grades and performance in ROTC. He considered it but in the end did not seek admission.”
