Obama said he called Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on his way to Ottawa, Canada from Washington to extend his condolences and reaffirm the United States’ commitment to decimating the terrorist group.
‘They’re going to be defeated,’ Obama said. ‘We will not rest until we have dismantled these networks of hate that have an impact on the entire civilized world.’

The White House said Wednesday morning Obama told Erdogan over the phone that the United States would offer any support that the Turks can benefit from as they conduct this investigation and take steps to further strengthen the security.’
Obama indicated Wednesday in Canada that it was the United States’ belief that ISIS, referred to by his administration as ISIL, was behind the carnage.
