"We are approaching a solemn anniversary this week. And it is an anniversary of a violent terrorist attack on the Capitol, where we saw the men and women of law enforcement demonstrate incredible courage, incredible bravery, risk their lives for the Capitol,” Cruz said ...
"It is also worth asking,” Cruz added, “What could have prevented the breach of the Capitol? What could have prevented the riot getting as far as it did?"
I never saw riots

I wish Jan 6th never happened; all it did was give douche bags ammo against the opposite side.

I think it's the long game.
The critical part being when he said it's important to ask what could have prevented it. He likely knows more about Pelosi refusing the extra security offered and a bit about the ground level commands that were being given that day, stand down orders etc.
I've never been a huge fan of Cruz, but I don't think he's rolling over and accepting the narrative they're selling. He's hedging his bets to save himself from undue scrutiny by saying it was a terrible event, but hinting at something bigger he's hoping will come out eventually.
It could even be a suble hint to Pelosi and other ranking Dems that he knows something, more than he's let on.
