Obama in the World: The President and Foreign Policy - Annual Review of the Presidency - 2014

5/19/2014; 87 minutes

President Obama has governed during a turbulent era in American foreign policy. The Obama Administration has dealt with the winding down of war in Iraq, the escalation of war in Afghanistan, the continued campaign against terrorism, the convulsions of the Arab Spring and Syria, the tensions of a frayed relationship with Russia, the disclosure of secret surveillance programs, and more. How has the president, who took office as a young man with relatively little foreign policy experience, met these challenges? Has Obama worked his will upon the world? Has he stumbled because of his own mistakes? Has he been overwhelmed by events beyond his control? A panel of experts examines the president's record on issues of global importance.
