Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, said Wednesday he hasn’t seen a “seriousness of purpose” in confronting the Islamic State terrorist group, as the White House sent a request for the authorization for use of military force to fight the group to Congress for consideration.
In an approximately 30-minute speech at the Center for Security Policy’s “Defeat Jihad” summit, Mr. Cruz also methodically picked apart recent comments from the president on religion, free speech and terrorism that have come under fire.
“What do you intend to do and how do you intend to do it?” Mr. Cruz said. “With regard to ISIS, we have not seen a seriousness of purpose. We have seen, instead, photo op foreign policy — a bomb here, a missile there.”
