Romney tackles foreign policy: ‘Hope is not a strategy’

GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney made a major foreign policy address Monday, wherein he declared that “Hope is not a strategy” in the troubled Middle East. His speech, delivered at the Virginia Military Institute, was made in light of the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

President Barack Obama previously used the term “lead from behind” as something of a badge of honor in describing his own direction in the Middle East and North Africa. Romney’s speech was a clear distinction to the president’s policy.

Romney argued that the United States must become better engaged as a participant and leader in world events rather than remain a mere observer.

The following two clips are brief highlights of Romney’s speech:
