A Monty Python Foreign Policy

George Will slams Obama.

Political commentator George Will slammed the Obama administration over their handling of Russian president Vladimir Putin and the evolving situation in Ukraine. Barack Obama’s foreign policy, Will explains, is best depicted in the comedy Monty Python. Via Fox News: “This [Russia] crisis began with Secretary of State Kerry saying nothing we are saying should be seen as a threat to Putin. Well, if you’re not threatening a bad guy who’s doing bad things, what are you doing? Today, or maybe it was yesterday, one loses track, Mr. Carney said we are actively evaluating. That’s distinct from passively evaluating. Now, the meals ready to eat that we sent, we were careful not to send in military planes because we thought that would be provocative. They were sent in commercial trucks. Some presidents take their foreign policy from the idealism of Woodrow Wilson, some from the realism of Henry Kissinger. This is foreign policy from Monty Python.”
