Absent America

Deep into President Obama’s second term his foreign policy has left the world gasping for American leadership. Attempting to remove US presence from the Middle East has not just failed, it’s created a tinder box in the region. We live in a hyper-connected globalized world where the events in distant land impact Americans; and refusing our responsibility to allies, as if another country can replace US strength is not a policy, it is a liability. Step up Mr. President.
