Obama: Security team amps pressure on enemies

HONOLULU

Obama says U.S. officials are doing everything in their power to ensure Americans are safe in the wake of the Christmas Day attack on a Northwest Airlines flight bound for Detroit.

The president, issuing a statement Monday during his holiday vacation in Honolulu, says U.S. authorities will not rest until they find everyone involved in the attack in Detroit and hold them accountable.

Obama's remarks were his first in public about a Nigerian man's alleged attempt to bring down the airliner.
