On Iran Mitt Romney said, “I would say that ships that carry Iranian oil can’t come into our ports”. But no Iranian oil has come to the U.S. for some time according to the Washington Post.

President Reagan banned all imports in 1987 and president Clinton banned all american participation in iranian petroleum development in 19-95.
