Bush Foreign Policy
Deputy Secretary Negroponte:
"The Bush foreign policy is synonymous, in many people’s minds, with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but in reality it is much broader. It is properly understood not simply as a reaction to the September 11th attacks but as an attempt to adapt American power to an international landscape shifting from the tectonic forces of globalization."

Deputy Secretary of State John D. Negroponte traveled to Dublin and Belfast November 16-19. In Dublin, he was named an Honorary Patron of the Trinity College Philosophical Society. He also met with the Irish Prime Minister and Foreign Minister. In Belfast, the Deputy Secretary had a wide range of meetings with political, business and civil society leaders
