Sen. Ted Cruz said "in a very real sense," President Obama funded the Iranian missiles because he had given Iran money.

Senator Ted Cruz told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Tuesday that he believes the Iranian missiles that struck Iraqi bases housing American troops this week were “in a very real sense” paid for by money given to Iran during the Obama administration.

According to Fox News, the Texas Republican told Hannity that President Barack Obama wrongly sought to appease Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in an effort to ease tensions between the two countries.

Instead, Cruz said, Obama only empowered Iran.

"If you look at Iran policy, I think you've seen a dramatic shift [under President Trump]," he said. "Under Barack Obama, as you noted, the policy was appeasement. The policy under the disastrous Iran nuclear deal under Obama was to give over $100 billion to Iran."

"In a very real sense, the missiles that we saw fired on U.S. servicemen and women tonight were paid for by the billions the Obama administration flooded the ayatollah with," Cruz said. "If history teaches anything, it's don't give billions of dollars to people who hate you and want to kill you."

More lies more lies. Reagan did the bombs. Obama paid back Irans own money.

Actually the Obama administration released funds that were held hostage by the Bush admin sanctions. The release of the funds was a condition of the Iran Nuclear Deal. It would have slowly allowed Iran to prove it's trustworthiness, but Trump decided to throw the baby out with the bathwater. He doesn't understand the "Carrots and sticks" method of diplomatic negotiations. Besides the fact that he thinks everything Obama did was wrong. The Right wingnuts either hate Blacks, Liberals, or both.

So Ted Cruz murders a boy prostitute and we get nothing but silence? He was at Epstein’s pedo island.

Using Harvard grad Ted Cruz's absurd logic one can say Cruz funded Isis with his votes to approve CIA budgets since CIA helped arm Isis and other terrorists in Syria.

SEN. TED CRUZ and PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, S TO P COMMITTING A FELON OFFENSE BY VIOLATING: 18 U.S. Code § 1038.False information and hoaxes.

Ted Cruz: Iran missiles fired at Iraqi air air b were 'in a very real sense' paid for by billions that Obama sent Tehran.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said Tuesday he believed the missiles Iran launched at Iraqi airbases where American soldiers are stationed were "in a very real sense" paid for by the billions of dollars the Obama administration sent to Tehran in 2016.

He, (the President Donald Trump) repeated a wild claim that the U.S. gave Iran "$150 billion, not to mention $1.8 billion in cash" after signing the deal. This is patently untrue: after the deal was signed, Iran regained access to $150 billion of its own assets, which had been frozen abroad. The $1.8 billion in cash was from a 1970s-era deal in which Iran paid the U.S. $400 million for military equipment that never ended up getting delivered due to the revolution, which disintegrated diplomatic relations. After the deal was signed in 2015, the U.S. agreed to pay Iran the original $400 million in addition to $1.3 billion in interest. Randy-HRS S01112020-1750hrs-6UTC-USA
