|U.S. Senator Ted Cruz|
In the statement from the press release Senator Cruz states: 'The President's failure to nominate a State Department Inspector General since taking office in 2009 is unacceptable. The position has been vacant for almost 2,000 days. This is a crucial oversight position and should be a priority for an agency facing substantial management challenges."
Senator Cruz talked about the important need for an Inspector General soon because of the lack of oversight the last 5 years on events such as the terrorist attack on the diplomatic personnel in Libya and "mismanagement at our embassy in Afghanistan".
Senator Cruz ends his press release: "Until the President acts, I have notified Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell that I will place a hold on all State Department nominations."
I am so proud that I can call Ted Cruz my senator from the state of Texas. He has stood tall above all the rest in my opinion. Can you believe this great man is a freshman senator? Talk about Mr. Smith goes to Washington, wow!
