Quote: Fact Check: Obama and Iran
Mitt Romney pressed his case that President Obama had practiced appeasement toward Iran, but he mischaracterized Mr. Obama's position on potential military action. The president has repeatedly said that military action against Tehran remains on the table.
It is also not true that Mr. Obama agreed to Russia's demand to give up missile defense facilities in Eastern Europe. He negotiated with Russia over the scale of the system, in an effort to win Moscow's agreement to the Start arms reduction treaty. In his discussion of national security, Mr. Romney also said the administration wanted to cut the Pentagon's budget by "roughly a trillion dollars," which is twice what Mr. Obama has suggested.
Mr. Santorum is correct in saying that in 2009, the Obama administration cut funding for a United States-based group that documented human rights abuses in Iran. But the State Department continues to finance other groups that seek to block censorship of the Internet in Iran. Mr. Santorum also slightly misstated Mr. Obama's decision to open an embassy in Syria. The United States withdrew its ambassador to Damascus under President George W. Bush; Mr. Obama decided to send an envoy back to Syria before withdrawing him recently because of the civil strife.

You are much more charitable in your description of them than I am, although your description is spot on!
