Obama Says Not Aware Of Actionable Intelligence Prior To Paris Attack

President Barack Obama on Monday said he was not aware of any specific actionable U.S. intelligence in the days and weeks before the Paris terrorist attack. "There were no specific mentions of this particular attack that would give us a sense of something we could provide French authorities or act on ourselves," Obama told a press conference in Turkey. The president said concerns about potential ISIS attack in the West "have been there for over a year now."
