Ben Carson under fire for his lack of foreign policy experience

02:36

GOP Presidential hopeful Ben Carson is playing defense after his foreign policy experience was called into question. This comes after a New York Times piece quoted Ben Carson’s national security advisor Duane Clarridge as saying Carson can’t get “one iota of intelligent information about the middle east” and needed weekly briefings on foreign policy so “we can make him smart.” Carson is now distancing himself from Clarridge. NBC’s Hallie Jackson reports for TODAY.
