Speaking at the National Counterterrorism Center in McLean, Va., Obama referred to several recent high-profile arrests of alleged terrorist plotters in Denver, New York, Illinois and Texas, saying the arrests have made the United States safer.
“The record of your service is written in the attacks that never occur because you thwarted them, and in the countless Americans who are alive today because you saved them,” he said. “For that, America is in your debt.”
