Cruz on Syria: Impossible Options

Texas Senator Ted Cruz is spending time with his constituents during the Congressional recess, and during an interview with NBC’s Julie Fine addressed the situation in Syria.

We are trapped between impossible options,” Cruz said. “On one hand, Bashar al-Assad is a monster … on the other hand, the opposition … are radical Islamic terrorists. They are people like al-Qaida, al-Nusra terrorists. They are even worse … The worst outcome would be to topple Assad and to see those chemical weapons fall into the hands of ISIS or al-Qaida”.
