Obama Call for 'International Order' Raises Questions About U.S. Sovereignty

clipped from www.foxnews.com

President Obama is facing criticism for his declaration over the weekend that he would seek a new "international order," with some questioning how much U.S. sovereignty the administration is willing to cede in exchange for more global cooperation. 

Obama, delivering the commencement speech Saturday at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, said that "stronger international standards and institutions" and stronger alliances can "resolve" challenges ranging from terrorism to nuclear proliferation to climate change to economic decline. 

"It's a very international sense that America is just one of many, that we are not going to be a superpower in leading the world and I think it's a very dangerous mindset and trend," she said.

"It's just simply not grounded in reality," he said. "It's strategic nonsense." 

"He thinks diminished American power and independence in the world actually is a force for good," Carafano said.
