Worst U.S. foreign policy team ever?

posted at 10:31 am on November 12, 2013 by Bruce McQuain

In the Wall Street Journal today, John Vinocur describes in excruciating prose how Barack Obama has essentially lost Europe for the US:

Back in 2011, when the United States killed Osama bin Laden in the middle of the Pakistani night, Barack Obama said that “as a nation, there is nothing we can’t do.” Mr. Obama told the world that America would be “relentless in defense of our citizens and our friends and allies.”

Two and a half years later, the Obama Administration doesn’t seem to be relentless in defense of anything beyond its direct domestic political interests—with the exception of its undiscerning spying operations on countries that pass as extended family.

What’s novel here is that in Europe, doubts about America’s wisdom, strength and resolve are increasingly focused on the person of the president. Beyond the espionage, think of Mr. Obama’s hesitations on Iran and turnabouts concerning Syria—or his role in lengthening the U.S. budget shutdown, or in providing America with a new but crippled national health program.

These days, and to varying degrees, the governments of France, Britain and Germany regard Mr. Obama as a problem. No longer expressed only in private, the notion represents a decline in the reflexive acceptance and respect that had cushioned European attitudes about his historic presidency.

In Germany, Die Welt, a consistently pro-American newspaper, regretted things were now at a point where it appeared the U.S. was trying to confirm every prejudice against it. This was happening, the paper’s publisher wrote in a front-page editorial last month, “under an American president who was once longed for in Europe like the Messiah, and whom Old Europeans finally saw as one—a president who didn’t arrive wearing Texas cowboy boots, and instead tucked his copy of Kant under his pillow. But that was fiction.”

The president who promised that his coming to power would cause the world to love us hasn’t been able to keep that promise either.  US foreign relations is in tatters.  To give you an example of the depth of the growing rift:

In “ Angela Merkel : The Chancellor and Her World,” a biography by veteran journalist Stefan Kornelius that was published in Germany in July, Mrs. Merkel is described as regarding the president as inscrutable. According to the book, the chancellor has exchanged expressions of discomfort with Nicolas Sarkozy and Gordon Brown about why Mr. Obama is “so peculiar, so unapproachable, so lacking in warmth” (my translation).

The book goes on to describe contact with the president as “revealing another Obama than the public image would let you suspect.” According to the book’s account of the chancellor’s thinking, she has diminishing confidence that Mr. Obama’s politically “dysfunctional” America is capable of understanding itself. And she is irritated by stereotypes like “Obama, the Angel of Peace.”

It comes as no surprise that they’ve discovered under all the hype there’s essentially an empty suit.  What’s more disturbing though is it took years for that to finally dawn on them apparently.

But, if foreign relations weren’t bad enough via the president, how about hiring a Secretary of State that is even worse than he is.  Jonathan Tobin comments:

In just the last week, Kerry has personally exacerbated tensions between Israel and the Palestinians that were already complicated by his lust for a peace deal that no one else thought possible. He stabbed both Israel and the moderate Arab states in the back by publicly accepting the terms of a weak nuclear deal with Iran that would have likely started the collapse of sanctions against Tehran and put in motion a process that would have made it possible for the Islamist state to reach their nuclear goal. He then added to that folly by rushing to Geneva to sign that agreement only to be embarrassed by the insistence of the French—of all countries—that there at least be a fig leaf of accountability for the arrangement. That blew up the P5+1 talks and left Kerry trying to explain both his appeasement and the failure while also obviously fibbing about the last-minute conditions being his idea rather than the brainchild of French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius. It must be admitted that to have done so much damage to American interests in so little time is quite an accomplishment. Though he has plenty of competition for the title, John Kerry may have already become America’s worst secretary of state in history.

Yes, folks, that’s your international “one-two punch”, the two who represent our best interests as a nation abroad.  I remember being told if the GOP stayed in control, we’d suffer a diminishing in the world.  Another myth shattered.  When we finally rid ourselves of this administration, there’s going to be one heck of a lot of fence rebuilding necessary in the world, and it is going to take years, if not decades, to recover from this 8 year debacle in foreign policy.

How could this be the worst foreign policy ever when we just got through with Hillary’s brilliant and accomplished term as SOS? At least John F’n Kerry is perceived as actually doing something. It’s always wrong, but it is something. Hillary’s term was a term of neglect and got a lot of people killed. One is deemed worse than the other? Failure comes in many forms and those two have mined new ways for too many decades. Joe Biden as a foreign policy guru? That has been the joke for over 5 years.

What difference, at this point, does it make?

IMO, American foreign policy in tatters is part of the same theme as domestic matters. A lazy stupid coward in the White House without the intellect, will, or vision to be anything but a perpetual campaigner who sees everything through a partisan political lens. The first and only instinct after Benghazi was to protect the administration from political accountability. To do so they lied to the American people and maintained a myth about spontaneous protests, a YouTube video, and Ambassador Stevens being aided by Libyans.

Why does this matter? If we just stop spying (which seems to be what everyone thinks) then our adversaries will become open and welcoming and friendly people, and our friends won’t do anything that would harm us, and nobody in the USA will talk about bombing subways with someone in Istan (wherever that is).

I’m not a fan of Mr. Obama, but I’m even less of a fan of Mr. Snowden.

.
You are looking at this from purely an American perspective.

Given the complete lack of substance contained in the person of Barack Obama and the fact other countries routinely profile and build “personality models” of the leaders of other countries, it is virtually certain leaders like Merkel have known Obama’s defeciencies for at least the last four years.

Publicly commenting on his shortfalls is, as a rule, not done for diplomatic reasons – and Obama is a very vindictive person, so why annoy him unnecessarily?

World leaders commenting publicly on his shortfalls is their method of publicly dismissing him as a serious player in ANYTHING while serving notice to the rest of the U.S. leaders that they now consider him a “lame duck” for the rest of his term.

Writing Barack Obama, and thereby the United States, out of a world leadership role is a VERY serious development that has been put off as long as possible – but one that was necessary due to the Obama administration’s glaring incompetence.

In Hillary’s defense the Benghazi thing each day is looking more and more like a half-baked CIA operation gone bad (which they always seem to do). I am not a fan of CIA operations of this kind for a reason. The should be for spying and intelligence and that is it.

Hillary should still take the blame for not providing more security when her people asked for it and hopefully voters will punish her for it.

The scary thing is not the past mess ups, it is the future ones. Obama is such a inept CEO that I fear that by the time his administration is over we will have foreign policy disasters that will make Benghazi a walk in the park. He can’t control his own administration, much less fluid situations outside this country….and worse does not seem to care.

All joking aside about what a leftist tool he is, he so inept that he is dangerous.

Exactly. Both the domestic and foreign policies of this Administration are in tatters because they are based on fundamentally flawed visions and agendas.

As bad as Obama + Kerry is, Obama + Clinton was little better. But the stink, like the policy, starts from the head.

If you think about it, Obama breaking his promise regarding ‘repairing’ the global view towards the US is as blatantly a lie as his lie about ‘if you like your insurance plan, you can keep your insurance plan’. All of his foreign policy actions have worked and focused on ‘repairing’ the US reputation with our enemies via appeasing our enemies.

In a historical analogy, the combination of Baldwin and Chamberlain in Britain during the 1930′s, and their collective incompetence and naive worldview, played a substantial role in creating the environment which led to the Second World War. We are now seeing the incompetent combination of Obama and Clinton / Kerry exceeding that of Baldwin and Chamberlain – with the result that we (and the world) are far less secure than we have been in a long time.

I don’t think we will ever be able to rebuild those fences. Ogabe & Co. have demonstrated beyond any shadow of a doubt that no American president’s promises or goodwill lasts more than his or her term and that the American people are perfectly capable of electing an individual who will do his or her absolute best to destroy decades of international diplomacy in service to his or her ego.

catsandbooks on November 12, 2013 at 1:12 PM

I disagree. It’s not in fact recoverable. The important thing to our erstwhile allies is NOT Obama. It’s an electorate where 51% are ignorant and foolish enough to elect such a moron. Long after Obama is gone, that electorate will still be here, and the world can never trust America the same way again, since every 4 years they’ll need to hold their breaths in fear of the next liberal moron media darling skating into office without two brain cells to run together.

SoRight on November 12, 2013 at 1:20 PM

I don’t think we will ever be able to rebuild those fences.

I think it depends a lot on who is doing the fence rebuilding and the focus they put towards it. It is very hard to rebuild broken trusts – and in many cases, it may very well be impossible.

In 1975, when the United States abandoned SE Asia under the demands of the Democrat dominated Congress, the entire world saw that there could / would be circumstances when the US would back down on its word. Trust was broken, and friends / allies had to start thinking about at what point would the US abandon them. It took a lot of work from the Reagan Administration to rebuild much of that trust and demonstrate that the US was committed to winning the Cold War.

What makes this next effort at rebuilding our reputation very challenging is that those who’ve we most insulted and angered are among our best friends and allies. That is the legacy of the incompetent Obama foreign policy.
