With the Middle East in flames and Vladimir Putin of Russia openly mocking Barack Obama, the host of CNN’s State of the Union can only see the President’s foreign policy as a success.
Introducing the subjects she would cover, Candy Crowley asked rhetorically, “And on the eve of the UN General Assembly, a look at the legacy of Barack Obama’s foreign policy: brilliant strategy or sheer luck?”
Later, Crowley asked, “A couple of weeks ago, the U.S. seemed on the brink of a military strike against Syria. Now in a turn of events, there’s a chance of diplomatic breakthroughs with not only Syria but Iran. Does the president deserve credit or was he in the right place at the right time?”
Does anyone believe the Iranians will capitulate and abandon their drive toward nuclear weaponry? CNN does.
