Jon Huntsman's Iranian Missile Problem

Jon Huntsman isn't involved with Huntsman Corp. anymore, but you can bet that Republican voters aren't going to accept that as an explanation for this:

Shortly after Jon Huntsman began his tour as President Barack Obama’s ambassador to China, an unwelcome letter from an anti-Iran nuclear watchdog group arrived at Huntsman Corp., the chemical company founded by his father.

The bluntly worded missive singled out a Tehran-based subsidiary — purchased when Huntsman worked for the company — for selling polyurethane that could be used in solid fuel for Iranian missiles, among other things.
