President Obama Also Urged Americans to Treat Muslims Fairly

President Barack Obama gave an address to the nation from the Oval Office for only the third time in his presidency.  The address was an attempt to reassure a nation left terrified after the San Bernardino shooting last week.  He labeled the shooting an “act of terrorism”, adding that the shooters had gone down the “dark path of radicalism”.

President Obama also assured the nation that the attack seemed to be an isolated incident unassociated with ISIS.  He called the terrorist organization a group of “thugs and killers” that were in a “cult of death.”  But notably, yet again he refused to call them “radical Islamic terrorists”, something he has taken plenty of heat for in the past.
