Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., who was widely condemned recently over her allegations that Islamist extremists were working inside U.S. government, on Friday suggested that President Obama's policies were to blame for attacks on U.S. embassies in the Middle East this week.

"What we’re watching develop before our eyes today are the direct consequences of this administration’s policy of apology and appeasement across the globe and the supposed success of the president’s foreign policy genius," Bachmann said.

In her speech at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, she attacked the administration, calling Obama "the most dangerous American president we have ever had on foreign policy." Here's a transcript.

Bachmann said the nation was "losing our ability to identify our radical Islamist enemy. And she said the U.S. should "draw an unmistakable red line for our enemies across the world." Watch a clip:
