Barack Obama’s Foreign Policy Speech. Odd indeed

Barack Obama Foreign Policy Speech related to Barack Obama book Barack Obama at West Point

The Financial Times uses the same word for President Barack Obama’s speech on foreign policy that the book entitled “The Five Oddities of the Obama Presidency”: ODD.

This is the FT quote

The odd thing about President Barack Obama’s foreign policy speech on Wednesday was not what he said but what he left out” (Geoff Dyer in Washington, Financial Times, May 29, 2014)


Richard Hass was also quite outspoken:

Obama has to stop prevaricating on foreign policy

US president’s speech tells us what he opposes not what he favours

Not surprisingly so ambitious a speech, aimed at so many audiences, failed to meet any, much less all, of its goals.
