“Yesterday the President did the right thing,” Sen. Cruz said. “I was in the White House, I was in the Oval Office with the President a half hour before his Iran speech. It’s a step that I have been urging him to do for the last year and a half. And I will say a major, major positive element was the speech given one week ago by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. An extraordinary speech revealing the over one hundred thousand documents that Israeli intelligence seized from Iran. […] The only conclusion from the Israeli intelligence is that the entire Obama Iran deal was built on an edifice of lies. And the only course, I believe, available to the President is the one he took. To withdraw immediately, to re-impose crushing sanctions, to urge our allies to do the same, and to ensure that Iran never, never, never acquires nuclear weapons.”
