Obama: Danger from terrorists remains

Jan. 28, 2014 at 10:12 PM

WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- President Obama said Tuesday while U.S. troops are out of Iraq and the war in Afghanistan is winding down, the danger of terrorism remains.

"While we have put al-Qaida's core leadership on a path to defeat, the threat has evolved, as al-Qaida affiliates and other extremists take root in different parts of the world," Obama said in his State of the Union speech.

"In Yemen, Somalia, Iraq, and Mali, we have to keep working with partners to disrupt and disable these networks. In Syria, we'll support the opposition that rejects the agenda of terrorist networks. Here at home, we'll keep strengthening our defenses, and combat new threats like cyberattacks."
