President Obama condemned the terror attack at an Istanbul airport Wednesday, suggesting that the Islamic State was responsible and pledging that the terror group would ultimately be defeated.
“It’s an indication of how little these vicious organizations have to offer,” Obama said while meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nietoat the North American Leaders Summit in Ottawa, where the agenda was mostly on continental cooperation.
“Beyond killing innocents, they are continuing losing ground, unable to govern those areas that they have taken over,” he said. “They’re going to be defeated in Syria, they’re going to be defeated in Iraq. They are going to be on the run wherever they hide. And we will not rest until we have dismantled these networks of hate that have an impact on the entire civilized world.”
