In a speech at National Defense University on Thursday, Obama addressed our global war on terror, the drone program, and Guantanamo Bay. Towards the beginning of his address, the President said:
"Now make no mistake: our nation is still threatened by terrorists. From Benghazi to Boston, we have been tragically reminded of that truth. We must recognize, however, that the threat has shifted and evolved from the one that came to our shores on 9/11. With a decade of experience to draw from, now is the time to ask ourselves hard questions – about the nature of today’s threats, and how we should confront them."
