Last night President Obama addressed the nation in the aftermath of last week's tragic shooting massacre in Southern California. Obama declared the shootings, which resulted in the death of 14 people, an attack of terror. However, he was unsure if the couple behind the incident recieved orders from ISIL or any other terrorist groups. The president also defended his stance in Syria and on combatting ISIL. Obama's remarks come amid criticism from Republicans and some Democrats about his policies on dealing with the Syrian civil war.
