A "Must Read" Piece: AP/"Obama on Defense at Summit of Americas"

For the benefit of our readers, particularly those that follow Latin America closely, I would suggest that the link to an Associated Press article entitled "Obama on Defense at Summit of Americas," offers an excellent overview of the multitude of issues facing the US, as it predominantly concentrates on Islamic terrorism:

COMMENT: Most noteworthy is the fact that many heads of state attending the Summit have intimated that this could be be the last such Summit unless Cuba is permitted to participate. Only the US and Canada object to Cuba's participation.

Regrettably, US foreign policy has knowingly permitted China to be become a dominant influence in Latin America while the US focuses on issues half-a-world away.
