Obama Reassures Americans No Credible Threat of Terror

(ABC News) — Flanked by his national security team, President Obama reassured Americans that there was “no credible threat” against the country.

“We do not have any specific and credible information about an attack on the homeland,” Obama said today at the National Counterterrorism Center. “That said, we have to be vigilant.”

It’s a similar message to one given in November by the president in the immediate wake of the terror attack in Paris, where he sought to reassure the American people that there was no “specific, credible threat” facing the homeland during the Thanksgiving holiday.

But following the attack in San Bernardino, California, an ABC News/Washington Post poll out Wednesday showed just 22 percent of Americans express confidence in the government’s ability to prevent lone-wolf terrorist attacks.
