As the nation emerges from more than a decade of war, President Barack Obama is seeking to recast U.S. foreign policy as an endeavor aimed at building international consensus and avoiding unilateral overreach. Obama's new approach includes $5 billion to help other countries fight terrorism and to expand funding for Defense Department intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, special operations and other activities. Obama was to outline his plans Wednesday during a commencement address at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York.
