In the fight against ISIL we cannot rely on an Assad regime that terrorizes its own people, a regime that will never regain the legitimacy it has lost. Instead we must strengthen the opposition as the best counterweight to extremists like ISIL while pursuing the political solution necessary to solve Syria’s crisis once and for all.
Moreover I’ve made it clear that we will hunt down terrorists who threaten our county wherever they are. This is a core principle of my presidency. If you threaten America, you will find no safe haven.

"Our objective is clear: We will degrade and ultimately destroy ISIL through a comprehensive and sustained counter-terrorism strategy."

— President Obama

ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents. The vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslims.

Happy birthday, Mr. President!!!

We did some things that were wrong. We did a whole lot of things that were right… but we tortured some folks.

President Obama at a news conference on Friday rationalizing US torture practices after 9/11.

Obama also said those who committed acts of torture “had a tough job” & “are real patriots.”
