I want the American people to understand how this effort will be different from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It will not involve American combat troops fighting on foreign soil. This counter-terrorism campaign will be waged through a steady, relentless effort to take out ISIL wherever they exist, using our air power and our support for partner forces on the ground.The way our partner forces took out Osama bin Laden?
And that was in Pakistan where we are allied with the government. A government that had troops stationed within walking distance of where Osama was living.
