Foreign policy is supremely important in today's world of international relations between governments. If a country is perceived as strong or weak, that perception can have a huge effect on the way that other countries interact with that country.

Unfortunately for the United States, under the current foreign policy plan of President Obama, the United States is giving up ground in both perceived power as well as actual military might.

On a recent appearance on Sean Hannity's program on Fox News, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani attacked the recent surge of ISIS attacks and supremacy, blaming it on President Obama.

"The reality is, this did not have to happen, if our policies were different," Giuliani said.

Giuliani logically pointed out the ways that Obama has created ISIS, most notably by leaving a vacuum in the Middle East with no concrete plans to fill the gap left by the U.S. military.

"ISIS is an Obama creation," he said.

Part of Giuliani's argument hinges on the fact that President Obama has repeatedly shown that he is receiving bad information about ISIS. Just days before the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris the president stated that ISIS was "contained."

That doesn't bode well for further U.S. involvement in the ISIS conflict. If our information is poor, our reaction time and efforts will be equally poor.

Giuliani made an intelligent connection between the president's bad information about ISIS and the divisive refugee situation.

"If he's getting bad intelligence about ISIS," Giuliani stated, "he's going to get bad intelligence about these refugees."

So what's a country to do? Do we really need to send our sons and daughters back to the Middle East to retake territory that we already liberated from Saddam?

According to Giuliani, yes. He asserted that the U.S. needed to have a presence in the Middle East, "until the threat is eliminated."

Thanks for the straight talk, Mr. Giuliani. We're certainly not getting it from the White House and it's refreshing.
