(Before It's News)


8:04 p.m. ET update: President Obama says “this was an act of terrorism designed to kill innocent people.”
President Obama will address the nation Sunday evening on the San Bernardino shootings in a rare speech from the Oval Office.
The White House announced the speech as a new addition to the president’s weekend schedule, with it scheduled for 8 p.m. ET Sunday.
It will be 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.
President Barack Obama is poised to deliver a rare prime-time address from the Oval Office on Sunday to reassure anxious Americans that his administration will protect them from the threat posed by ISIS.
The speech comes amid rising public concern about terrorism following last week’s shooting in San Bernardino, California, in which a Muslim couple killed 14 people and wounded 21 before dying in a gun battle with police.
His remarks also come as public distrust in his management of the U.S. anti-terrorism effort, which was once a strength that helped him re-election in 2012, is rising. Terrorism, national security and the place of Muslims in U.S. society have become a contentious 2016 campaign issue and are dominating the political conversation more than at any time since the September 11 attacks in 2001.
