How the Obama Administration Threatens Our National Security

In this revealing broadside, Victor Davis Hanson explains how President Obama has imprinted his domestic ideology of victimhood onto a therapeutic, Carter-inspired foreign policy. In Obama’s vision, the United States renounces its role as a defender of the postwar order and instead becomes an agent of global change—one that questions our existing system of defense, values, alliances, interests and commerce.

In tactical terms, Obama believes that his hope-and-change rhetoric and nontraditional background give him a moral authority abroad that will trump any inconsistency in U.S. foreign policy. But, as Hanson explains, at some future date, regional hegemons like Iran, Russia and China will demand even more acquiescence based on the theory that the present government of the United States either will not object or will do nothing concrete to stop them.
