More POTUS quotes from pool spray, per co-pooler Jerome Cartillier:

"Since I met with him (Abadi) a year ago, we have significant progress in rolling back ISIL ... Now, what we have been discussing and focusing on is to go right at the heart of  the ISIL operation in Mosul.
This is going to be a challenging battle, Mosul is a large city. But because of the prepositioning of forces, because of the cooperation between the collation and the Iraqi security forces and because of the cooperation the courage of the Kurdish Peshmerga, we feel confident that we will be in a position to move forward fairly rapidly ... It will be a tough fight ... One of the things we discussed is the importance of not just driving ISIL out of Mosul but (...) that we are prepared to provide humanitarian assistance and that we can rebuild the city in a way that assures not only ISIL does not come back but that extremist ideology born out of desperation will not return."
