Examples of collectively in a Sentence

  1. Barack Obama:

  2. Joe Votel:

But I think what we are all seeing at this point is kind of a lack of confidence in, you know, in the Afghan forces themselves and their leadership, their government and apparently in their partners here.

And, of course, it collapsed quite quickly.

  5. Le Drian:

    We're at a forum in Dakar talking about the need for Africans to collectively take charge of their security and yet it's not happening where there is urgency, everybody distrusts everybody. We have to get beyond that.
