Democracy Now: Obama Hails “New Era of American Leadership” in Speech to Air Force Grads

President Obama delivered a commencement address to graduating Air Force cadets in Colorado on Wednesday by touting his administration’s policy and declaring “a new era of American leadership.” In his remarks, Obama said he had shored up so-called U.S. exceptionalism by winding down the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

President Obama: “We can say with confidence and pride the United States is stronger and safer and more respected in the world, because even as we’ve done the work of ending these wars, we’ve laid the foundation for a new era of American leadership. And now, cadets, we have to build it. We have to build on it. You have to build on it.”
