“When people harm Americans, we don’t retreat. We don’t forget,” Vice President Biden said in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, as he talked about Steven Sotloff, an American journalist who was murdered by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
“Steven put his life on the line as a journalist to tell the stories of the Syrian people,” Biden said. “Because of the barbaric acts of ISIL, he was taken from us.”
But history has shown that the American people cannot be intimidated, the vice president said, adding that the United States “made sure that Osama bin Laden would never ever again threaten the American people.”
The “American people are so much stronger, so much more resolved than any enemy can fully understand,” Biden said. “As a nation, we’re united. And when people harm Americans, we don’t retreat. We don’t forget. We take care of those who are grieving. And when that’s finished, they should know we will follow them to the gates of Hell until they are brought to justice. Because Hell is where they will reside. Hell is where they will reside.”
