Cruz: Only Reason Sailors Were Seized by Iran ‘Is Because of the Weakness of Barack Obama’

cruzTed Cruz appeared on Fox News Sunday this morning and wasted no time in ripping into President Obama for showing weakness to Iran. He first told Chris Wallace that while he’s incredibly relieved at the release of American prisoners, it continues a “very dangerous precedent” that Obama has already set by “negotiating with terrorists.”

Wallace brought up the seizure of two Navy boats and 10 sailors in Iran last week, and how despite Cruz pledging “full force and fury” in response if he was president, they were released in 14 hours.

Cruz still insisted, “Any nation that captured our military officers, captures our soldiers, should face serious repercussions.”

Wallace again pointed out that they were released in 14 hours. Cruz responded, “The only reason they were seized is because of the weakness of Barack Obama.”
