ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Evidence is mounting that President Obama pursues a feckless foreign policy. His naive promise of “open discussions” with Iran, North Korea, Myanmar, Syria and the Taliban have yielded no results. Turkey, Brazil, China and Russia each delivered diplomatic snubs to his efforts at economic sanctions against Iran.

Meanwhile, Mr. Obama has squeezed our friends Poland, the Czech Republic, Honduras and Colombia and subjected Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister of our steadfast ally Israel, to a two-week public humiliation campaign. Now he is in a war of words with Afghan President Hamid Karzai - while American troops are risking their lives in that country.

These foreign-policy failures demonstrate both arrogance and ineptitude on our president’s part.
