Condoleezza Rice: America’s voice ‘muted’ in world affairs
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says the voice of the United States in world affairs “has been muted” under President Obama, creating a chaotic and dangerous security environment.
Miss Rice, who speaks Wednesday night to the Republican National Convention, sought to tout Mitt Romney’s foreign policy credentials.
She told “CBS This Morning” that Mr. Romney “would understand American exceptionalism and would not be afraid to lead from the front.” The election is about “the future of American leadership” in the world, she said, and U.S. policy on Syria has been ineffective.
Asked what she thinks Mr. Obama has done wrong, the former Bush administration official said Washington has been losing influence around the world because Mr. Obama repeatedly has demanded that Syrian President Bashar Assad step aside and nothing has happened.
