Sen. Ted Cruz blasted Barack Obama’s handling of ISIS suggesting “political correctness is killing people.”
Tuesday, during the CNN GOP debate, Cruz argued, “It’s not a lack of competence that is preventing the Obama administration from stopping these attacks. It is political correctness.”
Ted Cruz: Let me go back to the earlier discussion a minute ago. It’s not a lack of competence that is preventing the Obama administration from stopping these attacks. It is political correctness. We didn’t monitor the Facebook posting of the female San Bernardino terrorist because the Obama DHS thought it would be inappropriate she made a public call to Jihad and they didn’t target it. The Tsarnaev brothers, the elder brother made a public call to Jihad and the Obama administration didn’t target it. Nidal Hasan communicated with Anwar al-Awlaki a known, radical cleric asked about waging Jihad against his fellow soldiers. The problem is because of political correctness, the Obama administration, like a lot of folks here, want to search every one’s cell phones and emails and not focus on the bad guys and political correctness is killing people.
