RENO, Nev. (AP) - President Barack Obama is defending his foreign policy record - and taking veiled shots at Republican Mitt Romney over the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Speaking to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Obama said he's delivered on his promise to end Iraq "responsibly" and to wind down the Afghan fight.

Not mentioning Romney by name, he noted some critics have opposed his Afghan timeline. But Obama says he owes it to the troops.

Romney addresses the VFW on Tuesday before leaving on a three-country foreign trip.

The comments came as the candidates resumed campaign attacks that were paused after the Colorado movie theater shooting.
