The Obama Doctrine defined: (1) The policy of abandoning strategic cultural, political and military allies in favor of insufficiently placating cultural, political and military enemies in an effort to appease both parties and accomplishing neither; (2) After failing to protect US interests or values, engaging in the act of redefining what was originally being discussed in order to declare that the goal was not only met but surpassed and that any questioning of that accomplishment has already been answered and that we’re not talking about it anymore.
