‘We Have Contained Them’: Obama’s Claim About ISIS Just Hours Before Paris Terror Attacks

As first responders in Paris attempt to investigate an apparent terrorist attack that left dozens dead across the city, leaders across the world are reacting to the latest outbreak of European violence. Barack Obama weighed in during a press conference Friday evening. “Once again,” he said, “we’ve seen an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians.” He went on to describe the deadly incident as an attack on “all of humanity and the universal values that we share.” As America’s “oldest ally,” he added that the “French people have stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the United States time and again, and we want to be very clear that we stand together with them in the fight against terrorism and extremism.” While he was comfortable describing the attack as terrorism, however, Obama shied away from further conjecture. “We don’t yet know all the details of what happened,” he said, adding that the “situation is still unfolding.” “I don’t want to speculate,” he said, “at this point, in terms of who was responsible for this.” Even as Obama refused to venture a guess, social media posts documented accounts of multiple witnesses who affirmed the terrorists involved shouted “Allahu Akbar” as they shot into a crowd of citizens.
