The United States extends our deepest sympathy to all those affected by the attacks in #Thailand. We condemn these deplorable acts of violence. Our thoughts are with the victims, their families and loved ones, and the Thai emergency personnel responding to these incidents.

"What’s important for people to understand is we are making real progress in Iraq and Syria, and I mean real progress. In 2014, when they began to sweep across Iraq, that is when President Obama ordered the initial bombing that stopped them from moving towards Baghdad.

"And since then, we have recouped about 40 percent of the territory in Syria which they had captured. And we’re taking out about one leader every three days of ISIL/Daesh, so we’re making progress. That doesn’t mean they’re not a continuing threat; they are, and probably more so now a threat in some of these other areas where they try to prove their viability."

-- U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on CBS's "Face the Nation"
