President Barack Obama trumpeted his national security record today at Florida's MacDill Air Force Base, saying the U.S. is "breaking the back of ISIL" and has diminished the profile of terrorists, calling them "thugs" and "murderers."

Axar.az informs, he said, "No foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland. And it's not because they didn't try," pointing to the intelligence gathered at MacDill. The president used the speech to target President-elect Donald Trump's experience and desire to use waterboarding as an interrogation technique.

Obama said staying "true to our laws" strengthens America and prohibiting torture like waterboarding has not decreased intelligence gathering.

"We prohibited torture," he said. "And at no time has anybody who has worked with me told me that doing so has cost us good intelligence."
