Obama's foreign policy.  President Obama pushed back against critics of his record and outlined his vision for how the U.S. should deal with global challenges.   In a commencement speech at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the President said America will be the "one indispensable nation for the century to come," and should never shy away from military action when necessary.  But he also told those attending the graduation ceremony that "U.S. military action cannot be the only – or even primary – component of our leadership in every instance."  Obama urged Congress to support new fund that would focus U.S. efforts on counter-terrorism efforts in the Middle East and Africa.
