Cruz Announced National Security Advisers

After Ted Cruz announced his national security advisers on Thursday, some progressive advocacy organizations condemned the inclusion of Frank Gaffney, a former senior member of the Reagan administration and the founder of the think tank, Center for Security Policy. “It’s a terrible mistake for anyone to seek advice from Frank Gaffney on matters of foreign policy or much of anything else for that matter. His world is one of conspiracy, where the Muslim Brotherhood is infiltrating the highest reaches of our government and our country is on the verge of adopting Shariah law,” said Richard Cohen, president of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
