AEHQ: What Would They Do? National Security – Santorum

A big threat to peace: Iran.  That’s a key point to Rick Santorum’s view on national security and foreign policy.

FOX News Radio’s Rich Johnson has details in the final installment of our FOX News Radio special election series, “What Would They Do?”:

Audio clip:

From America’s Election Headquarters…

(Santorum) “I supported the war in Iraq, but even at the time I said the bigger threat is Iran.”

And Rick Santorum continues to repeat that warning he first made some seven years ago while a senator from Pennsylvania.  He notes that his bill, the Iran Freedom and Support Act, had no co-sponsors back in 2005, but eventually passed the Senate unanimously.  Santorum touts his eight years on the Senate Armed Forces Committee, and says THIS is his core philosophy on national defense and foreign policy:

(Santorum) “Nothing is so helpful to negotiations towards peace, as Ronald Reagan showed, as overwhelming strength and defense.”

To ignore that lesson, Santorum says, is irresponsible, naive and dangerous.
