President Obama To Argue For Avoiding Overreach Overseas

Confronting critics of his foreign policy, President Barack Obama will soon outline a strategy for his final years in office that aims to avoid overreach as the second of the two wars he inherited comes to a close.

The president will make the case for that seemingly more limited approach during a commencement address Wednesday at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. The speech will come amid growing frustration in the White House with critics who contend that Obama has weakened America's standing around the world.

A White House official says Obama will address his decision to pull back a military strike in Syria and his inability to stop Russia from annexing territory from Ukraine. The official insists on anonymity to preview the president's speech.
