LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Obama is ignoring Asia-Pacific

- - Wednesday, December 25, 2013

Former U.N. Ambassador John R. Bolton's piece is one of the most comprehensively cogent and eloquent ones I have ever read on the state of President Obama's miserable foreign policy ("Nero in the White House," Commentary, Dec. 18). This op-ed merits publication in U.S. diplomacy, history and political science textbooks, as it is a statement about frustrations with U.S. foreign policy.

America must consistently articulate and advocate its vision for not just the Middle East, but also the improved security and prosperity of the Asia-Pacific region. Mr. Obama has spoken frequently about focusing more U.S. attention on the Asia-Pacific region, but time and again he is drawn back to the Middle East.
