Rick Santorum on assassinating foreign nationals and American citizens

This video below pretty much speaks for itself, and addresses an ongoing concern as to how our government and military wields its power. It also makes clear that the conservative GOP candidate, Rick Santorum, has no problem with a calculated program of assassination carried out by our government.

It is one thing to be for a strong military and national defense. It seems quite another to have such an aggressive posture in foreign policy that we are willing to kill people because of what they might do.

Santorum, speaking about Iran during an October campaign stop in Greenville, S.C., said: “Now, I’m hopeful, when we see some of the things we’re seeing in respect to their nuclear program, that the United States is involved with. That is on occasion scientists working on the nuclear program in Iran turn up dead. I think that’s a wonderful thing, candidly.”

His response to “Well, well we can’t go out and assassinate people? “We’ve done it. We’ve done it to an American citizen.” And people belittle Ron Paul and call him “a kook.”
