Obama-Biden Foreign Policy Plan, November 2012

Published November 28, 2012

President Obama and Vice-President Biden released this foreign policy plan in November 2012, following President Obama's re-election.

The plan states, "Barack Obama and Joe Biden will renew America's security and standing in the world through a new era of American leadership. The Obama-Biden foreign policy will end the war in Iraq responsibly, finish the fight against the Taliban and al Qaeda in Afghanistan, secure nuclear weapons and loose nuclear materials from terrorists, and renew American diplomacy to support strong alliances and to seek a lasting peace in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict."
