President Obama delivered the graduation speech at West Point Wednesday, and with it, a foreign policy change of direction. Now, two Congressmen from the Hudson Valley from different sides of the aisle are weighing in.
President Obama’s speech outlined a shift to more collaboration and less combat on the international stage. He says the U.S. must lead on this stage, and the military is the backbone of this leadership.
“But U.S. military action cannot be the only, or even primary, component of our leadership in every instance,” President Obama said.
