Ted Cruz Destroys Blinken Over Failures in Afghanistan

Cruz destroyed Secretary of State Antony Blinken during a Senate hearing this week. The exchange is concerning and worthy of every American’s viewing.

“So I’d just like a yes or no. Did you give them the list?” Cruz asked.

Blinken responded, “Senator, if I may, please. Thank you. In limited instances, where we were seeking to get a bus or a group of people through a checkpoint, we gave a manifest to the people at the checkpoint to demonstrate that those people were expected.”

Cruz continued, “Roughly how many names were on the list you gave them?”

Blinken responded, “Doesn’t matter, because they all-”

Cruz continued, “Dozens, hundreds, thousands – give us some order of magnitude.”

Blinken responded, “This happened in a handful of situations where to get through-”

Cruz continued, “Dozens? So is it your testimony it wasn’t hundreds? I want to understand. Did you give them thousands of names?”

Blinken responded, “No, we did not.”

Cruz continued, “Okay. Hundreds?”

Blinken responded, “Not going to put a number on it, but it was, again-”

Cruz continued, “Why not? This is a hearing to discover – how many names and how many of those individuals you gave the Taliban the name to had been targeted for torture or murder?”

Blinken answered, “Senator, by definition, these were in limited instances with a bus or a group of people to get them through a checkpoint. They got through the checkpoint.”
