Obama: We will not tolerate the development of WMDs

Obama says he knows some are frustrated that the US did not use military force to date, and see a weakening of American credibility. And others are troubled that there was a readiness to use force.

The US is “chastised” from both sides, he says — blamed for meddling and slammed for not intervening. “Some of this is inevitable.” But it impacts the American public.

Now he outlines his Middle East policy to date and in the future. Among the keys:

“We will confront external aggression against our allies and partners.”

The US will protect energy supplies. It will “dismantle terrorist networks that threaten our people… and work to address the root causes of terror…. And finally we will not tolerate the development and use of weapons of mass destruction.”
