President Obama delivers speech in Oval Office on deadly San Bernardino shooting

President Obama addressed the nation Sunday evening on the San Bernardino shooting saying: "It was an act of terrorism designed to kill innocent people."

It was Obama's third Oval Office speech as president, his first since announcing the end of U.S. combat operations in Iraq on Aug. 31, 2010.

Obama met with his national security team to receive an update Saturday morning on the San Bernardino shooting, reaffirming the FBI had not yet found any indication the two shooters were part of any larger international terror networks or cells.

According to the White House, the president was expected to discuss "the broader threat of terrorism, including the nature of the threat, how it has evolved, and how we will defeat it."
