Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) blamed President Joe Biden this week for the Iranian-backed terrorist attack in the Middle East over the weekend that resulted in the deaths of three U.S. soldiers.

More than 30 soldiers were injured in the attack, U.S. officials said on Sunday, adding that they were positive that the attack was “carried out by radical Iran-backed militant groups operating in Syria and Iraq.”

Cruz responded to the attack during the most recent episode of his “Verdict” podcast with co-host Ben Ferguson, saying that Biden’s “national security failures, his weakness, his appeasement” produced the attack.

“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,” Cruz said. “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.”

“Not only is he too weak to respond with force, but even worse than that, Biden funded this,” Cruz continued. “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.”

Cruz noted that the Trump administration brought Iran to its knees with crippling sanctions by cutting off their oil exports to only a couple hundred thousand barrels a day or less.

“And Joe Biden came in he flowed $10 billion to Iran, he floats $6 billion to Iran,” he said. “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 said that Biden is so weak that more Americans are likely to be killed because Biden “will allow Americans to be killed and will not respond.”
