Romney attacks Obama on foreign policy


10:18, October 09, 2012

WASHINGTON, Oct. 8 (Xinhua) -- White House hopeful Mitt Romney on Monday delivered a scathing attack on America's failure to lead the world at a time of upheaval, in particular in the Middle East, under the stewardship of President Barack Obama.

The Republican presidential nominee was seen trying to draw a sharp contrast with the incumbent just as there are only 29 days left before the November 6 election.

In a speech at the Virginia Military Institute, the former governor of Massachusetts asserted that the attacks on U.S. consulate in Benghazi of Libya and American embassies in other parts of the world last month are no "random acts," but rather " expressions of a larger struggle that is playing out across the broader Middle East" now in the midst of the "most profound upheaval" in a century.

The attack in Benghazi on Sept. 11 left U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three of his staff dead, a tragedy that shocked America and the world.

Romney alleged that Obama has failed to use America's greatest power to "shape history" in the region, but instead chosen to lead from behind and leave "our destiny at the mercy of events."
