Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum said President Obama’s apology to Afghanistan for the burning of Korans on an American base demonstrates “weakness.”

In an appearances Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” and NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Mr. Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator, said, “I don’t think the president should apologize for something that was clearly inadvertent. There was no act that needed to be apologized for.”

Republicans have sharply criticized Mr. Obama’s apology, which came amid a week of violent riots in Afghanistan and deadly attacks on Americans there.
