Rick Santorum on ISIS: 'Bomb them back to the 7th century'

Speaking at the South Carolina Freedom Summit on Saturday, former Sen. Rick Santorum called for a stronger showing against the Islamic State.

"If these folks want to return to a 7th-century version of Islam, then let's load up our bombers and bomb them back to the 7th century," Santorum said, as reported by The Hill.

Santorum, who is considering another run for the presidency, also criticized President Barack Obama's framework nuclear deal with Tehran, which officials announced in April.

"Iran: Enemy. Israel: Friend," Santorum said. "I would be happy if the president were able to tell the difference between our friends and our enemies…Iran will never keep anything that they promise to do."
