Mitt Romney claimed President Obama made the mistake of pulling back.
He suggested Obama policies in Libya let Al Qaeda get strong enough to kill our ambassador. In Syria, Romney would get the rebels heavy weapons, despite the administration fear they will end in the hands of Al Qaeda.
Romney claimed he would be tougher on Iran about Nuclear Weapons.
Romney said President Obama's making it more dangerous by resisting Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's apparent willingness to attack Iranian nuke plants. Romney's remarks, said one expert, are not a strategy. The president fired back in an ad to run in Virginia. Barack Obama himself today publicly ignored Mitt Romney's speech.
The president sent out former secretary of state Madeline Albright to call Romney's grasp of foreign policy shallow and out of date.
