Foreign policy drift. Great piece. Ever since the reversals in Iraq some 20 years ago, the foreign policy of the United States has been primarily reactionary.

What is the role of the US abroad?

Who are our key allies?

Where do we see NATO five years from now?

What is our role in the Pacific? In the Sub Continent?

Who are our geo political foes and what is our approach to them singularly and collectively?

Obama either did not care, or pursued a singular treaty with Iran. The next two presidents either did not care, did not have the intellectual capacity to care, or simply lacked the energy to pursue these answers.
