On this morning's Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace asked Ben Carson how he would defeat ISIS and after a lengthy word salad response, Wallace tried to pin him down on detailing something real so he asked him who he would bring first into an International military coalition.

As you'll see, Ben had trouble naming our allies so he continued on with his word salad ISIS plan which forced Wallace to repeatedly ask him the same question over and over.

WALLACE: If I may sir, if I may, let me focus on the military component because obviously after the slaughter of over a hundred people....You have said that you would as president would try and create an International coalition, militarily to go after ISIS, How would you put that together? Who would you call first?

CARSON: Well, what I was just explaining, how we would use the resources that we have that includes some of our special ops people working in conjunction with an effective fighting force there. Those are the kinds of things that will create enthusiasm as we begin to take back the land, take back the areas, and, and damage their image throughout the world.

WALLACE: But who would you call first, specifically to put together an International military coalition?

CARSON: My point being, if we get out there and really lead and it appears that we're making progress then all of the Arab states and even the non Arab states, who I think are beginning to recognize that the, the, the jihad movement is global.....but if we fight it there, they will have to pool their resources in that area and then we won't have to necessarily won't have to fight them here. That's all I'm saying.

WALLACE: But, can you tell us who you would call first, sir? On the International front.


CARSON: I would call on all of the Arab states....

I don't know why he went Sarah Palin on Wallace on a simple question about who our allies are, which forced him to use a patented answer like "all of the Arab states," which covers all the bases if you don't know what you're talking about.

Carson is detailing his own plan to Chris Wallace. It wasn't a "gotcha question." .

Hey, Ben, If you can't name them then how can you use them in a fight? Oh, never mind.
