Conservative firebrand Dr. Ben Carson said Saturday that the scandal plaguing the Department of Veterans Affairs is actually a blessing in disguise.

“I think what’s happening with the veterans is a gift from God, to show us what happens when you take layers and layers of bureaucracy and place them between the patients and the health care provider,” Carson said during an appearance on Fox News.

“And if we can’t get it right, with the relatively small number of veterans, how in the world are you going to do it with the entire population?” he asked. “You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure this out.”
