Obama hits back hard at foreign policy critics

Barack Obama speaks during a press conference with the Philippines President Benigo Aquino at Malacanang Palace in Manila on April 28, 2014Barack Obama’s frustration is spilling over as he makes the most strident defence of his foreign policy yet, rebuking critics who say his diplomacy is haphazard, weak and blurs US national security red lines. His four-nation trip was meant to cement the most substantive doctrinal element of his foreign policy, the pivot of American power to Asia, which had been a little ragged of late. But Obama’s inability to deter President Vladimir Putin in Ukraine, the crumbling Middle East peace process and the unstoppable carnage in Syria, opened the president to new charges his foreign policy is a bust. He rarely loses his cool in public, but Obama was at his most waspish in public comments on foreign policy during the trip — recalling his ill-tempered debates with Republican Mitt Romney during the 2012 presidential race.
