WASHINGTON, Dec.8,2015-- U.S. President Barack Obama said Sunday the recent shooting rampage in southern California was an act of terrorism.
 
"This was an act of terrorism, designed to kill innocent people," said Obama in his third Oval Office address during his seven-year presidency.
 
"It is clear that the two of them had gone down the dark path of radicalization, embracing a perverted interpretation of Islam that calls for war against America and the West," Obama said.
