Santorum: Obama Trying to Allow Iran to Have Nuke

Thursday, 09 Feb 2012 10:15 PM

 

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is accusing President Barack Obama of actively seeking ways to allow Iran to gain a nuclear weapon.

In a speech Thursday in Oklahoma City, Santorum drew connections between the administration's opposition to the Keystone pipeline project, which would bring oil from Canada to U.S. refineries, and American dependency on foreign oil and U.S.-Israel relations.

Santorum says the U.S. will say it doesn't want Iran to have a nuclear weapon but will give in on the matter for the oil.

The U.S. doesn't purchase oil from Iran, but its allies do. Pulling Iranian oil from the world market would wreak havoc on oil prices.

The Obama campaign says that the president has been leading the international effort to sanction Iran.
