Considering President Obama was elected on an anti-war mandate, has he been a disappointment?


President Obama was elected in rebuttle to the aggressive war warmongering of the Bush administration. He was heavily in opposition to the very existence of Guantanamo Bay Detention Centre, advocated a less American-centric global foreign policy and pledged the return of troops from two messy wars. Now that he has sent more troops to conflict in Libya, not returned troops from Afghanistan, not closed Guantanamo Bay and failed to protect peoples union rights in Wisconsin, has Obama, all things considered, been a trifle disappointing?
