Editorial: Obama Vows to End the Perpetual War

“Our systematic effort to dismantle terrorist organizations must continue,” Mr. Obama said in the speech at the National Defense University. “But this war, like all wars, must end. That’s what history advises. It’s what our democracy demands.”

Mr. Obama pledged to create new protections for Americans’ civil liberties “to strike the appropriate balance between our need for security and preserving those freedoms that make us who we are.” He called for a strong, independent board to preserve civil liberties. - Obama Vows to End the Perpetual War
