Romney’s foreign policy plan: vacuous, ‘content-free’

Maria Dryfhout /

Mitt Romney’s nomination acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention was light on foreign policy discussion, to say the least. And what he did say wasn’t the paragon of accuracy, either.

Romney dedicated just over 200 words of his acceptance speech to foreign policy, quite possibly a record low for such an occasion. He argued that President Barack Obama took an “apology tour” after winning the White House, allowed Iran to pursue nuclear weapons, and “threw Israel under the bus.”

But those claims aren’t true, says Michael A. Cohen, writing for Foreign Policy. See the story at Foreign Policy.
