US President Barack Obama accused challenger Mitt Romney of being wrong on all foreign policy choices he has taken, in a forceful start to the final debate before elections.

The two candidates clashed over Syria, Libya and other hot-spots minutes in the debate in Boca Raton, Florida, as Obama said that the former Massachusetts governor has been "all over the map" on foreign policy.

Obama, who withdrew troops from Iraq, pointed to Romney's past statements in support of keeping a US military presence in the country that was attacked in 2003 under former Republican president George W. Bush.

Romney offered a dismal assessment of Obama's foreign policy, pointing to bloodshed in Syria and in Libya -- where four Americans including the US ambassador were killed last month -- and twice mentioning Al-Qaeda gains in Mali.
