Barack ObamaÂ delivered a major speech on national security and the war in Iraq Tuesday morning. He laid out his strategy for using all of the elements of American power to keep us safe, prosperous, and free.
I am running for President of the United States to lead this country in a new direction – to seize this moment’s promise. Instead of being distracted from the most pressing threats that we face, I want to overcome them. Instead of pushing the entire burden of our foreign policy on to the brave men and women of our military, I want to use all elements of American power to keep us safe, and prosperous, and free. Instead of alienating ourselves from the world, I want America – once again – to lead.
Barack Obama will lead a new foreign policy based on restoring America’s military strength and global respect, cooperating with allies, and reversing failed Bush policies. Watch the speech or read the text to learn about A New Strategy for a New World.
