In a foreign policy speech at Virginia Military Institute this morning, Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney called the recent attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, part of a larger struggle across the Middle East and outlined his “vision for a freer, more prosperous and more peaceful world.”
Romney claimed that the President remained “silent” and “passive” in response to tensions in the Middle East.
“Unfortunately, this president’s policies have not been equal to our best examples of world leadership,” Romney said to an audience of VMI cadets and national media.
Romney said he would strengthen the United States’ alliance with Israel, rollback cuts in military spending from the Obama administration, and sign new free-trade agreements.
