Sen. Ted Cruz didn’t pull punches at a recent speech before the Heritage Foundation, telling conference listeners that President Obama’s foreign policy failures had a lot to do with the fueling of radical Islamism and that his leadership skills were actually proving dangerous.

He first called the White House failure to send any top-ranking representative to the Paris rally a “sad” situation, especially given France’s support of America after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

“It was sad and unfortunate that we have not seen that same leadership with this administration now,” Mr. Cruz said, The Hill reported. “And I would note that that lack of seriousness and purpose, that lack of resolve is profoundly dangerous.”

Mr. Cruz then said the big threat is that a United States that’s perceived as weak actually stirs the pot of radicalism on the global front.

‘It’s dangerous because it encourages radical Islamic terrorists to redouble their efforts, and it’s dangerous because nations like Iran see that weakness,” Mr. Cruz said, The Hill reported. And a nuclear Iran, he said, is the “single greatest threat” to security around the world.
