Ted Cruz and Rep. Michael McCaul op-ed: Hold Iran Accountable for Terrorism

Al-Qaeda has used its protected status in Iran to fund and support new operations, and to escape U.S. counterterrorism efforts.
When news from Iran flashes across television screens in the United States, Americans have grown accustomed to seeing belligerence, including ballistic missile tests, harassment of U.S. forces, the kidnapping of our sailors and the unlawful imprisonment of U.S. citizens.
These are not the actions of a rational or friendly regime. They are the actions of autocratic thugs.
The Obama administration appeased Iran for eight years. Now the Trump Administration is ensuring America finally — and rightfully — stands up against Iranian hostility.
We believe they should also start pushing back against the regime’s disturbing and unabashed support for our terrorist enemies.
Iran is the world’s foremost state sponsor of terror, and we are alarmed by their increasing assistance to a “who’s who” list of Islamist militant groups.
