MORE BLOVIATING IN THE NY TIMES

An op-ed by a Columbia professor of International Diplomacy is trying to make some kind of warning/criticism of Pres. Obama's foreign policy but I don't think he succeeds.  He uses stale points like "Uneasy allies worry that Washington has lost interest in them." without naming even one and only pretends to give historical background when he fails to note that “d├ętente” with the Soviets became so controversial that Gerald R. Ford retired the word." because of the rise of the neo-conservatives. Overall, the arguments he makes seem to put Pres. Obama in a lose-lose bind.
