Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) gave Secretary of State Antony Blinken an absolute earful during Tuesday’s Senate hearing over the Biden Administration’s military exit strategy in Afghanistan.
At one point, Sen. Cruz likened the tragic chain of events to the 1979 Iran Hostage Crisis, which he claims former President Jimmy Carter “owns.”

The Texas Senator slammed the Biden Administration for not taking credit, and instead blaming former President Donald Trump for the “disaster” in Afghanistan.
“Just like Jimmy Carter owns the disaster of the Iran Hostage Crisis, you own this! The Biden Administration caused this disaster,” declared Sen. Cruz as he stared down Sec. Blinken.
