Breitbart: Ted Cruz Calls on Obama to Help Free Meriam Ibrahim
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is calling for President Obama to intervene to free Meriam Yahya Ibrahim, the Sudanese Christian woman whom an Appeal Court freed yesterday, who was just re-arrested at the airport trying to leave Khartoum.
“There is an urgency, a dire need for U.S. leadership,” Cruz told a small gaggle of reporters in the Capitol.
“President Obama should speak out publicly and call upon the government of Sudan to free Meriam Ibrahim. Sec. of State John Kerry should speak out loudly and forcibly and call up on,” he added.
Cruz said Ibrahim had been at the U.S. Embassy in Sudan before traveling to the airport to board a flight back to the U.S. and questioned why U.S. officials hadn't simply transported her in a military aircraft to avoid any danger.
