"During the course of administration, and in order to disturb it, the artillery of the press has been leveled against us, charged with whatsoever its licentiousness could devise or dare. These abuses of an institution so important to freedom and science are deeply to be regretted, inasmuch as they tend to lessen its usefulness and to sap its safety." —Thomas Jefferson (1805)

The President- From Saudi Arabia to Israel to NATO

0-03

to the G7, we made extraordinary gains

0-09

on this historic trip to advance the security

0-12

and prosperity of the United States, our friends,

0-17

and our allies.

0-19

We paved the way for a new era of cooperation among

0-22

the nations of the world to defeat the common enemy

0-26

of terrorism, and provide our children with

0-29

a much more hopeful future.

0-33

I was deeply encouraged to hear from the leaders

0-36

of many Muslim and Arab nations that they are ready

0-39

to take on a greater role in combating

0-41

terrorism and providing young Muslims, in their

0-44

region, with a future of safety and a future

0-48

of opportunity.

0-49

I went to Jerusalem, where I reaffirmed

0-53

our unbreakable bond with the State of Israel.

0-56

I was awed by the majesty and beauty of the Holy Land

0-59

and the faith and reverence of the devoted

1-03

people who live there.

1-05

All children from all faiths deserve a future

1-08

of hope and peace.

1-10

In Rome, I was inspired by the beauty, and even more

1-14

inspired by meeting with Pope Francis.

1-18

Then, I traveled to two summits.

1-20

First, at a NATO summit in Brussels, where we agreed

1-23

to improve the burden sharing among members

1-26

of our alliance, and to further confront

1-29

the shared threat of terrorism.

1-32

Next, I attended the G7.

1-34

I laid out my vision for economic growth and fair

1-37

trade and support of good paying jobs, and I called

1-41

for much greater security and cooperation on matters

1-46

of both terrorism, immigration, migration,

1-49

to protect our citizens.

1-52

We concluded a truly historic week

1-54

for our country.

1-56

We traveled the world to strengthen long-standing

1-58

alliances, and to form a new partnership among

2-01

nations devoted to the task of eradicating

2-05

the terrorism that plagues our planet.

2-09

And I am now more hopeful than ever

2-12

in the possibility that nations of many faiths, many religions,

2-16

and from many regions can join together

2-20

in a common cause.
