“Let’s see what I’ve done since I came into office: I said I’d end the war in Iraq. I did. I said that we’d go after Al Qaeda. They’ve been decimated in the FATA,” he said, referring to Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas, along the remote border with Afghanistan. “That we’d go after bin Laden. He’s gone. So I’ve executed on my foreign policy. And it’s one that the American people largely agree with.”
“So if Governor Romney is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so,” Obama said.
Romney has certainly been bellicose about Iran, Syria and even Russia. But he’s stopped short of specifics in those areas. Surely he’d engage in another way. We know this. He just hasn’t come out and said it. But this was smart politics on behalf of the president — now he almost has to answer the question.
