President Obama met personally with security officials to find out exactly how the botched terror attack happened. The president was briefed by his homeland security and counterterrorism advisor Thursday at his vacation home in Hawaii.

President Obama had ordered a full review of security policies following the attempted bombing of a Northwest Jet on Christmas day.

He reviewed two reports.

One of those reports examines airport screening. The other looks at terror watch lists.
