President Barack Obama says the United States is making real progress in its efforts to fight terrorism.
Obama visited the National Counterterrorism Center on Tuesday and told officials that their work is keeping the United States safe and more united than at any other time in the nation's history. He said the country and the military need their work now more than ever to disrupt, dismantle and defeat terrorist organizations such as al-Qaida.
Obama said he uses the center's "product" every day to make national security decisions and that officials' achievements are found in attacks that never happen.
