Obama Foreign Policy-9

FILE - In this June 4, 2009, file photo U.S. President Barack Obama speaks at Cairo University, where he called for a "new beginning between the United States and Muslims", and declared that "this cycle of suspicion and discord must end". Nearly five years into his presidency, U.S. influence is declining in the Middle East as violence and instability rock Arab countries. While the U.S. has consistently backed the rights of people seeking democracy, the violence that followed has often left the Obama administration unsure of its next move or taking tentative steps that do little to change the situation on the ground.
