Barack obama 'strengthened America' in first year: White House

The White House Tuesday argue with President Barack Obama's "steady diplomacy" had made America stronger and renewed its moral authority despite "unprecedented challenges" in his first year in office.
"A year later, America is stronger because of the president's leadership," said Ben Rhodes, deputy national security consultant for strategic communications, in a White House blog post.
"By prohibiting torture and working to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, we are denying Al-Qaeda a recruiting tool," said Rhodes, who has played an active role in many of Obama's main foreign policy speeches.
When he came to office in January 2009, Obama offered a hand of dialogue to Iran but has been rebuff and now the administration is working with international associates on a toughened sanctions regime over a nuclear showdown.
"After a year of American engagement, the international community is more united than ever before in calling on Iran to live up to its obligation, while Iran is more isolated," he said.
