Obama’s Excellent Foreign Policy
(The reference to the movie title is intentional.)
Seldom in American history has a President so beautifully executed foreign policy, so brilliantly engaged our friends, and discouraged our enemies.
Consider the latest example:
Charge d’Affaires Richard Hoagland and members of Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies (GLIFFA) hosted Embassy Islamabad’s first ever gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) Pride Celebration on June 26,
Over 75 people, including Mission Officers, US military representatives, foreign diplomats and leaders of Pakistani LGBT advocacy groups attended the ceremony.
We were utterly unprepared for Pakistan’s reaction:
Conservative religious groups in Pakistan … described the event as “cultural terrorism” and the second most dangerous attack on the country by the US after the drone and missile strikes that have that have killed civilians in addition to their intended insurgent targets.
How could we have possibly known?
