Obama Says “We Will Destroy ISIS”, “California Shooting Act of Terrorism”

Mon Dec 7, 2015 10:55:53

President Barack Obama vowed Sunday to "destroy" the ISIS terrorist group, branding its fighters "thugs and killers" in an address to the nation four days after the California mass shooting carnage that left 14 dead.

"The threat from terrorism is real, but we will overcome it," Obama said in a rare televised address, only his third delivered from the White House Oval Office. "We will destroy ISIL (ISIS /Daesh) and any other organization.

Obama said the couple who mounted the attack "had gone down the dark path of radicalization, embracing a perverted interpretation of Islam that calls for war against America and the West."

"They had stockpiled assault weapons, ammunition and pipe bombs. So this was an act of terrorism," obama said.
