The Fox Forum asked me last week to participate in a bipartisan look at Obama’s foreign policy. You can see my contribution here.
Here’s a tease:
Cast your memory, if you would, back to 2001: an admittedly incurious, anti-“nation building” president had just been inaugurated and…what was that? A Navy reconnaissance jet had to make an emergency landing in China after colliding with a Chinese fighter that intercepted it? It sure didn’t help, in those comparatively benign pre-9/11 days, to have a president so blase about and ignorant of the outside world that it called China a “strategic competitor.” Here we have a president keenly, inexorably aware of the damage, the havoc, that president wreaked upon our foreign policy and global brand.
