Critics include Capitol Hill Republicans like Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. Graham says Obama is projecting weakness at a time when the United States ought to show resolve against al-Qaida and other terror networks.

Graham says, quote, “at a time when we need resolve the most, we’re sounding retreat.”

Obama gave a major speech Thursday in which he said al-Qaida is “on the path to defeat” and signaled he’s reluctant to commit troops overseas to conflicts like Syria. He’s also modifying policies on the use of unmanned drone aircraft.

Graham says Obama is displaying a lack of resolve. He spoke on “Fox News Sunday.”
