American National Security and the Russian-Iranian War on Ukraine: A Conversation with Senator Ted Cruz

Episode Notes

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has criticized Joe Biden for “boosting, and in many cases funding, both sides” of Russia’s war in Ukraine. As Iran aids Russia’s invasion, the Biden administration allows the regime in Tehran to rebuild its energy exports, restore its economy, and buy and sell weapons to the Russian Federation. This position has had catastrophic consequences for the safety and security of Americans. In the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Senator Cruz recently told Secretary of State Antony Blinken that “no matter how much you may want to help Ukraine, there is something the Biden administration wants more, which is to re-enter a nuclear agreement with Iran.” 

Please join Michael Doran, Hudson senior fellow and director of the Center for Peace and Security in the Middle East, for a conversation with Senator Cruz about Cruz’s perspective on these issues and on global strategy more broadly.
