“If this Congress is serious about winning this war, and wants to send a message to our troops and the world, you should finally authorize the use of military force against ISIL”, — Obama said in his final State of the Union address, using another acronym for the group.

He admitted that al-Qaeda and IS pose “a direct threat” to Americans, adding that even a handful of terrorists who place no value on human life can do a lot of damage.
