CNN: Obama West Point Speech Got 'Icy' Reception, US Allies Confused

CNN’s international experts gave a lackluster review to President Barack Obama’s foreign policy speech he gave at West Point on Wednesday. CNN International anchor and correspondent Jim Clancy said the address “was not really a great speech” given where the president was speaking.

He described the reception it garnered at West Point as “pretty icy.” Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto added that if “you speak to the leaders of [our allies] there is confusion.”

Sciutto cited the administration’s inaction in Ukraine, and change in position regarding the use of force in Syria.
