Meese: Obama Wrong on Cold War Win

“Make no mistake: this change did not come from any one nation alone,” [Obama] said. “The Cold War reached a conclusion because of the actions of many nations over many years, and because the people of Russia and Eastern Europe stood up and decided that its end would be peaceful.”

But Meese, who advised President Reagan on foreign affairs as part of the National Security Council, said such moral relativism is “simply not true.”

Meese describes Obama’s foreign policy as “part of the cult of personality that has characterized the Obama administration in which he goes around the world saying things that get a round of applause from his audience without him appreciating or recognizing the negative impact it has on the United States.”

Meese said that if this type of diplomacy persists over Obama’s first and potential second terms, “I see a continued deterioration of the overall standing of the United States in the world.”
