    Uh-oh, the President says were safe again. He's 0-2 so far. Going for the three-peat.
    Also, pay no attention to the fact that he's heading to a remote location for 16 days. You are safe.

    Obama: No 'specific and credible' holiday threat
    http://www.cnn.com/2015/12/17/politics/obama-terror-threat-briefing/

    Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama insisted Thursday that Americans should feel safe inside their own country, declaring the United States free from "specific and credible" threats to the homeland.

    Continuing a week-long push to underscore his command of national security dangers, Obama said he understood why unease has spread after attacks in France and California. But he sought to bolster the country's mettle ahead of a busy holiday travel season.

    "If you target Americans, you will have no safe haven," he said at the suburban headquarters of his counterterrorism command center. "We will find you and we will defend our nation."

    "When terrorists pull off a despicable act like what happened in San Bernardino, it tears at our hearts," Obama said Thursday, acknowledging that it was natural for Americans to feel anxious. "But it also stiffens our resolve. To learn whatever lessons we can and make any improvements that are needed."

    The holiday season has traditionally brought with it some sort of potential terrorist threats. Past failed attempts to bring down jetliners -- including the foiled shoe and underwear bomb plots -- occurred during the winter vacation period.

    Busy tourist sites have increased security, including Walt Disney World in Florida, which is installing metal detectors for entering guests.

    Obama himself departs for a 16-day vacation in Hawaii on Friday, stopping on the way to visit privately with family members of those shot in San Bernardino earlier this month.

    Disneyland and Universal Studios step up security
    http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-disneyland-metal-detectors-20151217-story.html

    Two weeks after the mass shootings in San Bernardino, Disneyland and Universal Studios have started using metal detectors to screen guests in addition to other enhanced security measures.

    Disneyland and Disney California Adventure began Thursday morning to randomly screen guests using a walk-through metal detector and have increased the number of uniformed officers outside of the park.
    Disneyland officials also said security officers with bomb-sniffing dogs would patrol throughout the resort. Under the increased security policy, toy guns have also been banned from the park and guests older than 14 won't be allowed to wear masks or costumes.

    Officials at both parks said the extra screening measures were not prompted by the shootings in San Bernardino, which killed 14 people and injured 22 others.

    Didn't he already say ISIS wasn't a significant threat? Considering how well that went I'm sure everyone is completely worry free.
