Seattle Times letters to the editor

Obama’s caution on foreign policy is warranted

Frank Bruni’s column [“Obama’s understatement of the world situation,” Opinion, Sept. 2] excoriated President Obama’s caution in foreign affairs and failure to “project an image of presidential resolve or decisiveness at a time of international turmoil.”

Former President George W. (”Ready! Fire! Aim!) Bush projected exactly the kind of image admired by Bruni. A few armless, legless, blind or dead American soldiers is a small price to pay for the correct presidential image.
