"Last point I’ll make is, on good governance, one of the best inoculators against terrorist infiltration is a society in which everybody feels as if they have a stake in the existing order, and they feel that their grievances can be resolved through political means rather than through violence."

Barack Obama, the 44th and current President of the United States, speaking August 6, 2014 at a Press Conference after U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit.
