The former senator is now warning of an Iranian attack in North Dakota:
"Folks, you’ve got energy here. They’re going to bother you. They’ll bother you, because you are a very key and strategic resource for this country," the Republican presidential candidate said. "No one is safe. No one is safe from asymmetric threats of terrorism.”
When campaigning for re-election in 2006, Santorum attempted to make Iran an issue. "The principal leader of this Islamic fascist movement is Iran," he said in a speech to the Pennsylvania Press Club while campaigning."I believe this is the greatest enemy we will ever face. This is the enemy of our generation. It is the challenge of our time. And yet, we tend to play politics with it here in America — sadly." … In a recently removed 2010 video on the Vimeo channel of ExpressRiders.org, Santorum pitched potential investors on a full-length feature film on the Iranian nuclear threat. "I'm getting into the movie business," Santorum said, "this is a movie that needs to be made."
