Obama: Al-Qaida spinoffs also working against US

President Barack Obama has defended his pursuit of the war in Afghanistan, calling it "a big messy process" but one that is indispensable to curbing the threat of terrorism.
Obama told a White House news conference Thursday that terror groups linked to al-Qaida are increasingly running their own operations against Western targets. He said it was "absolutely critical" to dismantle the network of extremists.
The president said that U.S. forces are making progress in the war with the help of coalition partners.
