Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on Monday dismissed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s major speech on foreign policy as mostly platitudes and little substance.

Speaking at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington earlier on Monday, Romney had criticized President Barack Obama’s Middle East policy of using “hope” and “passivity” as a strategy. He falsely asserted that the “president has not signed one new free trade agreement in the past four years.” And the former Massachusetts governor also made passing mention of Latin America, Russia and Asia.
