(NBC News) President Obama issued a rallying cry to the world Wednesday as he addressed the United Nations General Assembly, imploring nations to reject “the cancer of violent extremism.”
Mr. Obama said the world has to destroy ISIS miltants and what he called their “network of death.”
“No God condones this terror. No grievance justifies these actions,” President Obama said.
