One of the reasons that Iraq is melting down as jihadists ravage the country is because the United States doesn't really "have a foreign policy today," says political commentator Mike Reagan, son of the late President Ronald Reagan. 

"This president along with the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would not agree to a Status of Forces Agreement, which would certainly help what's going on today in Iraq," Reagan told J.D. Hayworth on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV on Monday.

The other major problem is that there is a also a major leadership vacuum in the world.

"Right now in the world that we live in, there is a lack of that cadre of leaders in the world to stand up and say, 'What are you doing? What's going on? Stop this right now,'" Reagan said.

"If there is a leader in the world today, that leader is Vladimir Putin," he argued. "I wrote about this months ago that Vladimir Putin is basically the puppet master and everybody else is on the string that he has allowed them to in fact have."

But he said that it's time for someone to take responsibility like his father did following the Iran-Contra affair.

"When you accept responsibility we accept you," Reagan said. "But nobody in Washington, nobody wants to accept responsibility for what is going on today."

Reagan added that if he "were a gold star mother," who had a son or daughter who had lost a limb or life in Iraq, he "would be marching on Washington, D.C." demanding answers.
