Odd Obama speech on foreign policy

How odd was President Barack Obama’s speech on foreign policy at West Point? and Why was it odd?. …judge by yourself

The Financial Times uses the same word for President Barack Obama’s speech on foreign policy that the book entitled “The Five Oddities of the Obama Presidency”: ODD.

This is the FT quote

The odd thing about President Barack Obama’s foreign policy speech on Wednesday was not what he said but what he left out” (Geoff Dyer in Washington, Financial Times, May 29, 2014)

 

Richard Hass was also quite outspoken:

Obama has to stop prevaricating on foreign policy

US president’s speech tells us what he opposes not what he favours

Not surprisingly so ambitious a speech, aimed at so many audiences, failed to meet any, much less all, of its goals.

You can hear some of the most important times of the speech here and judge by yourself
