Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “Ted Cruz hits ex-CIA boss John Brennan over 'bizarre' support of Iran following killing of nuclear scientist”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and former CIA director John Brennan traded barbs regarding the killing of Iran's top nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.

"This was a criminal act & highly reckless. It risks lethal retaliation & a new round of regional conflict," Brennan wrote on Twitter. "Iranian leaders would be wise to wait for the return of responsible American leadership on the global stage & to resist the urge to respond against perceived culprits."

"I do not know whether a foreign government authorized or carried out the murder of Fakhrizadeh," Brenna continued. "Such an act of state-sponsored terrorism would be a flagrant violation of international law & encourage more governments to carry out lethal attacks against foreign officials."

"These assassinations are far different than strikes against terrorist leaders & operatives of groups like al-Qaida & Islamic State, which are not sovereign states," he tweeted. "As illegitimate combatants under international law, they can be targeted in order to stop deadly terrorist attacks."

Cruz reacted by saying, "It's bizarre to see a former head of the CIA consistently side with Iranian zealots who chant 'Death to America.' And reflexively condemn Israel. Does Joe Biden agree?"
