He said that the U.S. military shouldn't be "Al Qaeda's air force."
According to Politico, the Texas Republican said that though he is glad Obama listened to calls from him and others to bring the issue to Congress, America should not get involved and risk helping terrorists in the rebel forces.
Senator John McCain said that Cruz sounded totally uninformed in his comments.
He added that there is overwhelming evidence that the Free Syrian Army is still the dominant opposition force on the battlefield, not terrorists.
According to the report, Cruz said of nine major groups of rebels fighting in Syria, at least seven had ties to Al Qaeda, and a strategy from Obama that would arm those groups 'makes no sense whatsoever'.
