Ted Cruz Thinks 'Every One' of His Colleagues Should Watch This 60-Second Video Before Iran Vote

"My name is Sgt. Bartlett..."

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz said on Twitter Wednesday night that he thinks "every one" of his Senate colleagues should watch a 60-second video-testimony delivered by a retired staff sergeant who was wounded by an Iranian bomb while serving in Iraq.

The video, produced by Veterans Against the Deal, features medically-reitired Staff Sgt. Robert Bartlett recount how he was injured in 2005.

"My name is Sgt. Bartlett and I was blown up by an Iranian bomb. It cut me in half from the left corner of my temple down to my jaw ... total devastation. That day is imprinted in my day forever," he said.

"Every politician who is involved in this will be held accountable. They will have blood on their hands," Bartlett continued. "A vote for this deal means more money for Iranian terrorism. What do you think they are going to do when they get more money?"

Cruz tweeted his strong support for the video, encouraging the entire U.S. Senate to watch it.

Congress is set to take up debate on the Iran deal when members return from August recess in early September.
