Obama Counterterrorism Policy: Homegrown Terrorism is Tough But Important


President Obama addressed the recent uptick in homegrown terrorists as the new face of terrorism. He explained the need for redefining police and investigative procedures to include the instances of American citizens attacking their own people based on radicalized ideology.

He described this as being one of the toughest aspect of counter-terrorism policy given America's committment to civil liberties. President Obama reiterated the importance of addressing intolerance as an old but pressing problem of the larger American community.
