On Obama's Foreign Policy Failures


An analysis of the Obama administration's amateurishness and incompetence in foreign policy. Click here.

What the piece omits: Obama's overt alignment with oxymoronic "moderate" radical/rightwing political Islam, or Islamism, a clerical fascist creed that aims to overturn the status quo in societies and regions across the globe. The policy has backfired horribly, as shown most dramatically by the results of the unnecessary "humanitarian intervention" in Libya, the cynical betrayal and abandonment of Egypt's secular Mubarak regime, and the stirring-up of an Islamist insurrection in Syria. 

Obama has effectively narrowed the definition of the Islamist enemy to Al Qaeda alone. All other Islamist groups and regimes, including the Taliban, are considered candidates for engagement (code for collaboration) by a President and his advisers who appear to regard the blood-soaked sword of political Islam as somehow being in sync with--or a weapon for advancing--the cause of global social justice.

Where is the outrage?
