Foreign Policy Chickens Coming Home to Roost

As depressing as it is unsurprising:
... the terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11 should have been a red flag to all who believe this president has invented a successful new model for U.S. leadership. Far from being an aberration, Benghazi was a toxic byproduct of the light footprint approach — and very likely the first in a series of boomerangs.
You don't say!  The entire piece looks at other such "red flags."  Remember, Libya's supposed to be the "success story" of Obama's approach to foreign policy.  Frankly, I'm pessimistic about foreign policy in Obama's second term and getting more pessimistic all the time.
