What Foreign Policy?

"American foreign policy in 2014 hasn't been born..."

Mar. 18, 2014

Cal Thomas: “President Obama, perhaps our most self-absorbed chief executive, has said: ‘I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president – with the possible exception of (Lyndon) Johnson, FDR, and Lincoln – just in terms of what we’ve gotten done in modern history.’ Leaving aside his hubris and a debate over whether retreat from the world and pressuring Israel to give up more land to its enemies are accomplishments, what should be concluded from such a ridiculous statement about America’s foreign policy? Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger has observed: ‘No foreign policy – no matter how ingenious – has any chance of success if it is born in the minds of a few and carried in the hearts of none.’ American foreign policy in 2014 hasn’t been born, because under this administration it does not even appear to have yet been conceived.”
