Obama returns to US to meet with France’s Hollande, confront world terror threat

President Obama returns to Washington this week to meet with French President Francois Hollande, following the deadly terror attacks in Paris that have dominated world politics including sharp debate in the U.S. about how to stop  Islamic extremists believed responsible for the strikes.

“Our coalition will not relent,” Obama said Sunday in Malaysia, the final stop in his roughly one-week overseas trip. “They cannot beat us on battlefield, so they’ll try to terrorize us into being afraid. … As president, I will not let that happen. I will not give into fear.”
