Perry slams Obama during New Hampshire appearances

(CNN) – Libya. Egypt. Israel. Syria. Ukraine. Iraq.
Rick Perry ticked the countries off one-by-one, his list of what he terms President Barack Obama’s foreign policy failures.

Speaking at a rally for New Hampshire Republican activists, the Texas governor touched on the execution of journalist and Granite State native James Foley at the hands of the Islamic extremist group ISIS.
