Obama’s six big foreign policy points in the State of the Union --- President Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday night did not dwell extensively on foreign policy. Obama offered no new proposals and seemed to talk around some of the toughest challenges. But he did discuss the United States' role in the world, particularly in the Middle East. Here are the big quotes from his speech, what they mean and what they left out. -- (1) Pushing hard for the nuclear deal with Iran -- (2) We're pulling out of Afghanistan -- (3) We're still going to fight terrorists, though -- (4) Sunny thinking on Syria -- (5) A nod to nuclear disarmament -- (6) The Arab Spring and pivot to Asia fall by the wayside --- All in all, it's no wonder we didn't hear much about foreign policy last night. - More, Max Fisher, Washingtonpost, at:
