Appearing on Fox News’ “The Kelly File” Wednesday night, Senator Ted Cruz called out President Obama for a foreign policy he said was driven more by appearances than objectives. Cruz was an early critic of the Obama administration’s strategy for attacking ISIS, calling it “fundamentally unserious” the same night it was announced.

Host Megyn Kelly asked Cruz if Obama’s strategy remained unserious, and he agreed. “Unfortunately, what we have seen in six years of the Obama-Clinton-Kerry foreign policy has been a foreign policy that seems to focus on photo-ops and press releases, not on concrete military objectives that are tied to our national security.”

“Our objective here should be to take ISIS out, but instead this seems to be a campaign driven by political operatives and political mandates in the White House, rather than clear military objectives.”
