Obama gives meandering defense of U.S. policy before UN General Assembly

President Obama gave a meandering defense of U.S. policy before the United Nations General Assembly in New York today, capped by declarations of wiggle room on key issues such as Iran as he directed Secretary of State John Kerry to begin dialogue with new “reformer” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

Not bothering to mention the human rights of Iranians, the president’s muddled message continued: “We are not seeking regime change, and we respect the right of the Iranian people to access peaceful nuclear energy.”

He even declared that al-Qaeda had still been damaged even after rattling off recent terror attacks, and boldly proclaimed “the world is more stable than it was five years ago” — just before acknowledging that “a glance at today’s headlines indicates that dangers remain.”

Like he did just hours after last week’s Navy Yard shooting, Obama touted economic recovery “five years after the global economy collapsed.”
