Ted Cruz says White House can’t defend ‘foolhardy’ Iran deal

US Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) warns against the dangerous repercussions of a nuclear deal with Iran on a radio show, on Wednesday.

Cruz attacks the draft deal, saying that “the Obama Administration and its defenders cannot defend the substance of this foolhardy deal with Iran. And so they’re doing everything they can to distract from it.”

He continues by detailing what the administration, in his mind, is doing to avoid addressing what he calls a deal that will “lead Iran to acquiring nuclear weapons.”

“Last week, all they could discuss was Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech, and their perceived myths of protocol…” says Cruz, “because they cannot defend on substance a deal that will lead inexorably to Iran acquiring nuclear weapons, which poses an enormous threat, the single greatest threat to America’s national security, of anything on the globe…”
