President Obama is preparing a series of speeches defending his foreign policy, starting Wednesday with the commencement address at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. The speech will outline why the right foreign policy, the White House said in a statement, "is one that is both interventionist and internationalist, but not isolationist or unilateral." Obama will follow up Wednesday's speech with a series of speeches that include remarks during an upcoming trip to Europe. In early June, Obama will visit Poland to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the end of Cold War, Brussels for a Group of Seven summit with global allies, and Normandy, France, for the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion that led to victory in World War II.
