WASHINGTON (AP) – The latest on President Barack Obama’s Oval Office address on the threat of terrorism and the government’s response following attacks in California and Paris (all times local):
President Barack Obama says he understands why Americans are worried about the threat of terrorism but is reassuring Americans the U.S. will overcome it.
Obama says “we will prevail by being strong and smart.” He says Americans cannot give into fear.
President Barack Obama says it’s clear the two killers in the California shootings had gone down the “dark path of radicalization.”
Obama is giving an Oval Office address on terrorism and the U.S. response following attacks in California and Paris. He’s calling it an “act of terrorism designed to kill innocent people.”
Obama says the killers had stockpiled weapons and ammunition. But Obama says there’s no evidence the killers were directed by a terrorist organization overseas. He says there’s also no evidence they were part of a broader network in the U.S.
