Carson: Moderate Muslims Need to Work With Us to Identify Radical Muslims

After the CNN’s GOP debate on Tuesday, MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt listened in on GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson during an interview where it appears he was discussing dealing with Islamic terrorists.

Carson suggested one way to combat Islamic terrorists would be that the moderate Muslims need to help identify the radical muslims rather than sitting “on the sidelines” and doing nothing.

“We also need to be working with the imams, and with the clerics and the moderate Muslims. They need to understand that they need to be working with us to help identify radicals and radicalized elements because if they can’t identify them, how are we supposed to identify them? And if we can’t identify them, that’s going to affect our policies. So it will work out, you know, much better if they will join our efforts than if they sit on the sidelines and do nothing.”
