Rick Santorum Says Obama Shouldn't Have Apologized For Koran Burning

GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum thinks President Barack Obama erred in apologizing after US troops inadvertently burned a handful of Koran's. According to Santorum it was the Afghanistan people who engaged in "overreacting" to the situation.

During his time on NBC's Meet the Press Santorum revealed:

"I don't think the president should have apologized for something that was clearly inadvertent. [The president should have said] this was inadvertent, this was a mistake. There was no deliberate act. There was no meant of disrespect - this is something that occurred that shouldn't have occurred, but it was an accident."
"You highlight it when you apologize for it, you make it sound like there was something that you should apologize for," he said.
"The response... needs to be apologized for, by Karzai and the Afghan people, of attacking and killing our men and women in uniform, and overreacting to this mistake. That is the real crime, not what our soldiers did."
