Obama acknowledges California attack was act of terrorism, confident US military will defeat extremists

President Obama on Sunday night acknowledged that the U.S. is “at war with terrorism” following a series of deadly terror attacks on American soil and around the world, and sought to assure Americans that the growing global terror threat will be defeated.

Obama spoke four days after terrorists apparently associated with ISIS fatally shot 14 people and wounded 21 more in San Bernardino, Calif. Those attacks came 19 days after a series of shootings and suicide bombings in Paris killed 130.

“This was an act of terrorism designed to kill innocent people,” Obama said of the San Bernardino shooting in his first Oval Office address since 2010. “I am confident we will succeed in this mission because we are on the right side of history.”

    He said absolutely nothing. He still has no plans to defeat terrorism. He has no plans to beef up security in America. He has no plans to free up the military to defeat our enemies. It was just the same old crap he has been spewing since day one. He has proven time and again to be pro terrorist. He is just covering for his own.

    He is so full of it. He has decimated the military of strong leadership. Under his direction, there is little they can do. Pilots in Iraq coming back with 3/4s of their loads because they are so restricted is the perfect example. That man even lies about his lies.

    Obama will never defeat Isis because he doesn’t WANT TO, imo. The military can defeat them but only if Obama allows them to fight without one hand tied behind their back and they have to let the enemy fire before they can fire back. The military which will defeat Isis is the Russian Army!!!
