Senator Ted Cruz, debating (yes, debating, it was not an interview) CNN’s Erin Burnett, who sounded more like a member of the Obama-Hillary Clinton defense team than a journalist (no surprise), said that the real question that the media should be focused on is whether Obama has been arming the ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) terrorist organization (WATCH VIDEO BELOW).
Cruz told Burnett on Tuesday, when he wasn’t rudely interrupted by her constant blurbs supporting Obama and Hillary (emphasis added):
“The most consistent error of the Clinton-Obama foreign policy is the failure to understand the nature of our enemies. It is striking that neither President Obama nor Hillary Clinton in this discussion tonight are willing to utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorists.’ They do not understand the radical religious extremism of individuals committed to Jihad who had pledged to murder Americans and it leads them to keep making mistakes over and over again, whether it is releasing five senior Taliban terrorists without understanding that these individuals will likely return to active warfare against the United States, whether it is in the case of Iraq, not understanding the threat posed by ISIS.
I’ll tell you a great question we ought to be asking right now is whether the Obama administration has armed ISIS, these radical Islamic terrorists, whether they’ve armed them in Syria. We know they’ve armed some of the rebels. We haven’t had an answer about which ones they’re arming and which ones they’re not. You cannot win a battle against radical Islamic terrorism if you’re unwilling to utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’”
