"Between now and November, a lot of things are going to happen, and I believe that by this time next year, the American public’s going to have a very different view of this war, and it will be because, I think, of some unfortunate events, that like we’re seeing unfold in the UK.

Is Santorum expressing foreknowledge of some coming atrocity or is he merely using a tactic familiar to the leadership of his party - exploiting the fear of terror for the purposes of political rhetoric?
Santorum Suggests New Terror Attacks Will Change View Of War, Prison Planet, July 7, 2007
I don't know about you but I for one am quite curious as to where Mr Santorum draws his prophetic powers from. While expectation of terrorism as a general possibility is fairly mundane it must be noted that Mr Santorum predicts terrorist events with a rather high degree of specificity, at least as far as their timeframe.
A good cop should get suspicious here. Are our counter-terrorism officials good cops? Well, if they are they ought to call Mr Santorum in for a little chat and ask him a few questions. Espeically so if those events he is talking about start becoming reality.
