This papyrus reviews the doctrine of the Obama presidency on criminal justice administration and abstracts the principles for the evaluation of the foreign policy records of the Obama administration. W.E.B. Du Bois theorized the potential role of America in world peace and conflict based on a double victory strategy that also addresses injustice at home. A brief review of theories of international relations leads to the conclusion that Obama is a realist who subscribes to the democratic theory of international relations and not the socialist or radical that his opponents want to paint him. The popular democratic revolutions in the Arab world appear to support the optimism of Obama that the African philosophy of non-violence would achieve more for the international community than war-mongering. The papyrus concludes by calling on the Obama foundation to offer some of the principles of criminal justice that he outlined in his Harvard Law Review commentary to international criminal justice issues in order to avoid what he told journalists was the greatest foreign policy mistake of his presidency, "Probably failing to plan for the day after what I think was the right thing to do in intervening in Libya," after the bombing of Libya by NATO forces
