This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) attributed the Iranian-backed terrorist attack in the Middle East that claimed the lives of three U.S. soldiers and was attributed to President Joe Biden.
U.S. officials reported on Sunday that the attack injured over thirty soldiers and that they were certain that the damage was inflicted by radical militant groups sponsored by Iran that were active in Syria and Iraq.
Cruz, in the most recent episode of his “Verdict” podcast with co-host Ben Ferguson, provided a response to the assault by attributing it to Biden’s national security shortcomings, his frailty, and his willingness to appease.
“We’ve talked a lot in this podcast about the 13 servicemen and women murdered in Afghanistan, again, because of Joe Biden’s weakness. And understand, there have been over 170 attacks by Iranian proxies on US troops. Iran is waging war on the administration, on America, on our servicemen and women. And Joe Biden is so utterly weak, he doesn’t do a damn thing about it.” Cruz said.
“Not only is he too weak to respond with force, but even worse than that, Biden funded this. Understand Joe Biden is responsible for flowing roughly $100 billion to the Iranian regime to the Ayatollah, to the mullahs. That is funding these attacks. The October 7th attack on Israel, murdered over 1,200 Israelis was among the worst terror attacks in the history of the United States with the Americans who were murdered. Joe Biden, in a very real sense, funded that as well.” he continued.
“And Joe Biden came in he flowed $10 billion to Iran, he floats $6 billion to Iran. And he stopped enforcing the oil sanctions that ended up flowing $80 billion to Iran. Today, Iran is selling 2 million barrels a day of oil. These rockets, these drone attacks that just killed three servicemen and women, Joe Biden, in a very real sense funded them. Because when you send $100 billion to a theocratic lunatic who screams ‘Death to America and Death to Israel’, you know what happens? They actually
follow through on that.” Cruz concluded.
