Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum said Sunday that he would bomb Iran's nuclear facilities if the country failed to open them up to inspectors.

Speaking in an interview on NBC's Meet the Press, the former senator said that he would send a clear message to the Iranians: "you either open up those facilities, you begin to dismantle them and make them available to inspectors, or we will degrade those facilities through air strikes."

"I would say to every foreign scientist that's going into Iran to help them with their [nuclear] program, you will be treated as an enemy combatant, like an al-Qaida member," he said. "Iran will not get a nuclear weapon under my watch."
