In other words, Obama condemns Israel’s Mossad for doing something we should be doing.

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is saying the U.S. should not have condemned the death of an Iranian nuclear scientist this week.

Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan died Wednesday, when a bomb attached to his car by a passing bicyclist exploded. The Obama administration condemned the killing.

Santorum said the administration’s public posture does not reflect a hard line on Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons.

To about 200 people in a crowded Greenville diner, he said: “Our country condemned it. My feeling is we should have kept our mouth shut.”
