Obama has no foreign policy [Letter]

I suggested to Funk & Wagnalls (I guess I should really tell Wikipedia, too) that the editorial regarding President Barack Obama's foreign policy be listed as a good example of "sycophancy" ("Obama at West Point," June 1). President Obama's foreign policy is a disaster.

He lost an ambassador in Libya, and we don't even know why he was in Benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11. The Arab spring has worked out real well. We have Dennis Rodman representing the U.S. in North Korea. The economic sanctions against Russia for taking Crimea were to punish some oligarchs — not exactly real punishing. And Vladimir Putin had to save Mr. Obama from his stupid red-line in Syria where people are still being gassed (not to mention being killed in other ways).

To say there is a foreign policy at all is a fantasy.

With what countries other than Cuba or Venezuela, do we have better relations? By the way, both are socialistic — just like our golfing and campaigning president.

Lyle Rescott, Marriottsville
