President Obama gives final national security speech to MacDill service members
Tampa, Fl. —
President Barack Obama gave an optimistic evaluation of his national security record and the campaign against terror in the Middle East and North Africa in an address Tuesday Dec. 6, 2016, at MacDill Air Force Base, Florida, thanking servicemen and women for their help in “breaking the back of ISIL.”
The speech, which was the end of the president’s one-day visit to MacDill, was likely his last major national security speech before he leaves office.
