Obama makes go­ing af­ter ter­ror net­works top pri­or­ity

Asian Journal - - World -

Wash­ing­ton: Warn­ing that parts of the world in­clud­ing Pak­istan may be­come safe havens for new ter­ror­ist net­works, Pres­i­dent Barack Obama made pro­tect­ing the Amer­i­can peo­ple and go­ing af­ter them his top pri­or­ity. But in a pow­er­ful speech Tues­day night he re­jected Repub­li­cans’ sug­ges­tion that the spread of the Is­lamic State across much of the Middle East and the group’s ap­par­ent widen­ing of its tar­get list to Europe and the United States posed a threat to Amer­ica it­self. “Some of th­ese places may be­come safe havens for new ter­ror­ist net­works; oth­ers will fall vic­tim to eth­nic con­flict, or famine, feed­ing the next wave of refugees,” Obama warned.
