Rick Santorum's Targets Obama in his Speech to AIPAC

GOP candidate Rick Santorum was greeted by applause and music as he took the stage at the conference for American Israel Public Affairs Committee on Tuesday, March 6.

Within the first five minutes of his speech, Santorum accuses Obama of "turning his back" on Israel's immediate danger from Iraq and it's manufacturing of nuclear weapons.

Being a former congressmen, Santorum is well educated in Middle Eastern issues reported CBS news. He believes that Obama and his administrators have taken a relaxed outlook on the Isreal-Iraq conflict.

Even though Obama's administration assures that there is no differences between their commitment to stop the production of nuclear weapons from being built in Iraq and the GOP candidates positions, Santorum still managed to find some holes, The New York Times reported.

Santorum continues, touching on how the administration has allowed talks to come about with the Iranian government that conflicts with the "UN's resolutions, that say they must stop the production of their nuclear fuel, before they are allowed to get those negotiations."

He goes on, suggesting that the administration give the Iranian government an 'ultimatum' to stop all production of nuclear weapons and let United States and other country officials survey their nuclear facilities otherwise the United States would stop them by force reported The New York Times.

Santorum made it very clear that negotiations are not needed, and that its time to take action.

"Another appeasement, another delay, another opportunity for them to go forward, while we talk," Santurom said.
