Five foreign policy headaches for Obama.
US President Barrack Obama will defend his foreign policy today, in a commencement address at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
White House officials say that the President will lay out a foreign policy which is interventionist, but not over-reaching.
The speech comes, amid stinging criticism of the President's foreign policy following a trip to Asia last month.
The President, who has carefully avoided any sort of military confrontation in his responses to challenges in Syria and Ukraine, hit back at his critics, saying his aim is to avoid costly "errors" on the world stage.
