Is Obama a Turkey or an Eagle?

Rossiter, Caleb
October 2010
Foreign Policy in Focus;10/28/2010, p4
The author reflects on the aggressive and anti-imperialist symbols of U.S. foreign policy, specifically the U.S. war on terror. He mentions the divide between the Democratic and Republican parties over how to combat the war on terror but not about the opposition of Islamist groups to U.S. domination of the Middle East. He explains the need for the U.S. to avoid any treaty that limits its freedom of action. He also talks about the concept of exceptionalism, which holds the U.S. as a leader with special rights.
