Obama emphasized that the fight against the extremist groups is complicated and challenging.“My top priority is to defeat ISIL and to eliminate the scourge of this barbaric terrorism that’s been taking place around the world, this is difficult work,” he added. “It’s not because we don’t have the best and the brightest working on it, it’s not because we are not taking the threat seriously, it is because it’s challenging to find and identify very small groups of people who are willing to die themselves and can walk into a crowd and detonate a bomb.” Listen to his speech and approach To ISIS below.
