Making the news
We must define the nature and scope of this struggle, or else it will define us. Neither I, nor any President can promise the total defeat of terror. What we must do is dismantle networks that pose a direct danger.

British police have arrested a man on suspicion of terrorism who was reportedly a friend of one of two suspects in Wednesday's brutal murder of a British soldier on a London street.
The friend, identified as Abu Nusaybah, was arrested Friday night, immediately after giving a television interview to the BBC about suspect Michael Adebolajo.
In the interview, Nusaybah claimed Adebolajo, 28 had been approached by Britain's security service months ago to work as an informant -- an offer he refused.
Nusaybah told the BBC that MI5 agents sought out Adebolajo after he returned to Britain from Kenya. He said Adebolajo had been changed by his trip to Kenya, where he claimed to have been detained and abused by local security forces.
London's Metropolitan Police confirmed that counter-terrorism officers arrested a 31-year-old man Friday on "suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism." Officials say the arrest was made at the BBC building, but have not confirmed the man's identity. They say the arrest was not directly linked to Wednesday's killing.
Adebolajo and his fellow suspect in the attack, 22-year-old Michael Adebowale, remain under guard in a hospital after police shot and arrested them following the murder. ...
