The Senate panel just approved the resolution giving Obama authority to use military force against Syria.
It's like I said in my piece at WND today; "...it isnt just McCain. John Boehner Tuesday announced his support for Obamas Syrian plan. And Jeb Bush is going to present an award to Hillary Clinton. Why? Why would the GOP and a potential 2016 candidate sanction this? Remember: Clintons State Department was told that Benghazi was a terrorist attack minutes after it began and lied about it.
"We dont need a third party. We need a second party. Ted Cruz is not enough. The GOP is all but disappearing before our very eyes. They are MIA on Obamacare, Benghazi, the IRS and now Syria."
Even the NY Times reported, Nowhere in rebel-controlled Syria is there a secular fighting force to speak of."
It appears what the president is pressing for is essentially protecting his public relations because he drew a red line, and, essentially, the bluff was called, Cruz said.
Cruz said of nine major groups of rebels fighting in Syria, at least seven had ties to Al Qaeda, and a strategy from Obama that would arm those groups makes no sense whatsoever.
Ill give you one of the simplest principles of foreign policy that we ought to be following: Dont give weapons to people who hate you. Dont give weapons to people who want to kill you, Cruz said.
