For closer look at how the president laid out his foreign policy vision let's bring in Fox News contributor -- renowned former spokesman for four US ambassadors to the UN.
Rick good to seeded -- your reaction.
To the president's remarks today.
You know this whole speech today to the UN was it was really silly theater when it came to Iran.
People are acting like we don't know what the Red Line it is with Iran and I find it puzzling.
The President Obama is pretending like we need to have additional talks with Iran.
When the Security Council including Russia has laid out six times what the Red Line is in the Red Line is very clear.
That Iran must stop enriching all uranium.
What the Iranians want to do is enrich a little bit of uranium so with if John Kerry is gonna talk to be a Ronnie and and not say hey.
We've got six resolutions where the international community including Russia says that you should stop enriching uranium if we say anything less than that.
And we are under Qaeda in the UN Security Council and the international consensus that's been built up.
For over a decade so I'm not sure what all this theater is about shaking hands.
We just need to be very clear comply with what the international community including Russia has said.
Well the president said you know.
First are gonna resolve this nuclear program and then we can move -- -- other things mean that is not something that he's been able to resolve previous administrations have been able to resolve -- He says we need to give diplomacy a chance but -- long before hand the US was working on giving diplomacy a chance with a run.
What has changed if anything.
Yet nothing has changed diplomacy has been going on without military action -- -- really push.
From the international community diplomacy has been going on for a very long time.
It's been going on for six UN resolution so it's always puzzling when President Obama arrives to the foreign policy issues so late.
And pretends like he's the first one to think of things that mean he he's out there today in front of the UN saying we need to give diplomacy a chance.
Where does he think -- -- for the last decade where does he think that the Security Council has wrestled through these issues.
Again like I point to the fact that we have rushed shots.
Join mean six resolutions on Iran.
Drawing a very clear red line while the president United States is still trying to get Russia to join the Red Line on Syria so it's.
We've already done the hard work on Iran we shouldn't try to re open that.
We should just say very clearly stop enriching uranium like six UN resolutions have demanded.
Anything less than that.
Means that the president of the United States and John Kerry are weaker than the UN -- speaking of.
A remark today that seemed by our president aimed at -- after the president -- op Ed in which she said that you know we shouldn't be talking about America being.
President Obama said today some may disagree but I believe America is exceptional.
I think it was a great line actually to say in front of the UN community it clearly was a swipe at Russia.
And you know it's puzzling to see them picking this fight though.
Right where we -- right when we're trying to convince Russia to join a chapter seven mandated resolution.
Two to make clear the Red Line in Syria so.
-- it goes back to Samantha Power who threw -- hands a couple of weeks ago and said diplomacy was dead only to find John Kerry trying to revive it.
This is an administration that really doesn't know how to act strategically when it comes to Russia you remember that we started the relationship -- Us secretary of state Hillary Clinton thought.
The best thing to do is to revamp the relationship and it's turned out to be -- via the exact wrong thing to do our relations with Russia -- have gotten.
Night we'll see how they -- digest that remark from our president today Rick always good to see it thank you.
