Barack "Empty Suit" Obama nails himself, big time

Senator Barack Obama is looking increasingly more inept on foreign policy concerns. Last week he attacked Senator Hillary Clinton as being "irresponsible and naive" for not meeting face-to-face with dictators:
"The notion that I was somehow going to be inviting them over for tea next week without having initial envoys meet is ridiculous," he said in an interview outside his Senate office. "But the general principle is one that I think Senator Clinton is wrong on, and that is if we are laying out preconditions that prevent us from speaking frankly to these folks, then we are continuing with Bush-Cheney policies."
This week, Senator Obama is even more Bush-like than Bush himself:
He offered harsh words to Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, who has been the target of assassination attempts for his efforts to aid the United States in rooting out terrorist havens in the northwestern region of his country.

"I understand that President Musharraf has his own challenges. But let me make this clear. There are terrorists holed up in those mountains who murdered 3,000 Americans. They are plotting to strike again," Obama said. "If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will."
Senator Obama's foreign policy as president seems to be "negotiate with our enemies; invade our allies".
