President Obama thanked counterterrorism employees Tuesday for helping keep the United States safe, warning federal workers at the National Counterterrorism Center and the national TV audience that terrorist groups are "still plotting" to attack on American soil.

"The record of your service is written in the attacks that never occur -- because you thwarted them -- and in the countless Americans who are alive today because you saved them," Obama told the audience at the National Counterterrorism Center in audience.

Obama warned there could be more attacks to the United States but that he would work tirelessly to keep the country safe. "I pledge to do everything in my power as president to keep America safe," he said.

The centered opened after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks to help collect and analyze counterterrorism intelligence to combat terrorism inside the United States and overseas.
