MANCHESTER, N.H. — Possible Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum says the founder of the WikiLeaks website should be prosecuted as a terrorist for posting classified national security documents.

Santorum made the remarks Tuesday while speaking to a rotary club in New Hampshire, his seventh trip to the state that holds the first presidential primary. He says the leaked U.S. diplomatic memos have exposed a sense of growing urgency and frustration across the Middle East over Iran's nuclear ambitions.

The former Pennsylvania senator accused the Obama administration of being OK with a nuclear Iran and said it should be focused on that instead of trying to push a nuclear arms treaty with Russia through Congress.
