A White House official said the incident was an attempted act of terrorism. The FBI is investigating and President Obama, celebrating Christmas in Hawaii, was told of the incident about three hours after the plane landed, officials said.
Obama has told White House officials that all appropriate measures be taken to increase security for air travel, a spokesman said. Nevertheless, officials said, they are not prepared to raise the terrorism alert level, currently at orange -- or the second-highest of five levels -- for domestic and international air travel.

The WaPo is reporting, Obama; who is in Hawaii celebrating whatever he celebrates on December 25, was NOT TOLD ABOUT TODAYS FAILED AL QUADA TERRORIST ATTACK FOR 3 HOURS.
I am absolutely outraged - 3 hours?
The left lost their minds over Bush collecting his thoughts for 6 minutes but Obama can't be bothered for 3 hours?!?!
Calling Michael Moore you lazy, fat, hypocrite, basturd!!
Today, a known terrorist, under orders from Al Quada, almost brought down a plane over US Soil. At least two people plus the terrorist was hurt.
Now we learn this same terrorist was already on the NO Fly List - but allowed to board a US bound flight.
Obama can't be bothered for 3 hours, says security measures are just "peachy as is". Dear Leader won't increase our current threat level.
It's Christmas and many Freepers are enjoying the day with their families. For those that are lurking around can you tell me this does not infuriate you?
Our incompentent SOB, whose administration says there is no terrorism, only man-made disasters, admits a terrorist attack almost was pulled off but ahhhh no big deal.
Pray for this country!!!
Best bet is to keep that book away from Presidents.
What’s stunning is that the White House would admit this was a terrorist attack. For the last six years, the government has bent over backwards assuring us that everything that smells suspiciously like terrorism on our soil isn’t really terrorism.
Why is this one different? Could it be that Obama is trying to bump his poll numbers?
Still no word about the islamic terrorist that’s destroying our country from the inside? What’s his name...Obama.
So the cat is out of the bag eh?
What will Obama do? Vacation as usual?
Then return to DC to be concerned?
2 hours 54 minutes until “”Christmas Truce” expires.
It was on the freakin news within minutes. How in the F doesn’t the POS President not get the info for 3 hours?
outrage is an understatement
We will be told by authorities to not jump to any conclusions...
While a lot of people are out tomorrow looking for those after Christmas sales...The news will get out very sparsely, and it will be diluted by the end of the weekend...
Nothing to see here folks...And nothing new either...
We (not the government) are going to have to be 100% right, they only have to be once...
Ok, which of you is correct, was he or was he not on the no fly list?
“celebrating Christmas” you say?
Oh, like by going to church as all his predecessors have done?
Dam I miss President Bush, locking my doors and loading my guns...
Somehow Obama and his posse will find a way to use this to take a little more of our freedom away.
C’mon...WTH is he supposed to do?
Maybe he should just let the investigators investigate without his meddling?
