Human rights abuses that go on inside North Korea are unfathomable to nearly the entire world & should have no place in the 21st century.

None of us will ever forget where we were 13 years ago when we were attacked at home & just 2 years ago when we were attacked in Benghazi.
I'll be traveling throughout the Middle East & Europe to continue the diplomatic effort to meet a unifying threat w/ a unified response.
We're uniting the world against a unified threat & the President's strategy will succeed b/c doing it with allies & partners is smart/strong
