Washington (CNN) - Ben Carson repeated on Sunday his claim that President George W. Bush could have used oil as leverage to capture Osama bin Laden.
Then, Carson brought up Iraq.
"Well here's the point -- here's my point. My point is, we we had other ways that we could have done things. I personally don't believe that invading Iraq was an existential threat to us. I don't think Saddam Hussein was an existential threat to us. It's a very different situation right now. Now, we have global jihadists who want to destroy us and our way of life," he said.

The conservatives were very upset when The Donald pointed out the 9/11 did happen Bush was President but Ben Carson's latest claims go far beyond that.
