It may have taken him 3 days but Barack Obama finally left the beach for five minutes to comment on the attempted terrorist bombing on Christmas Day.
It looks like somebody slipped him a jacket.
President Barack Obama on Monday vowed to track down all those behind an attempt to bring down a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day, confronting criticism that he had slipped up on national security.
“We will not rest until we find all who were involved and hold them accountable,” Obama said, interrupting his year-end vacation in Hawaii to assure Americans that his administration was doing all it could to ensure security after a Nigerian man managed to smuggle explosives onto a Detroit-bound flight.

“The American people should be assured that we are doing everything in our power to keep you and your family safe and secure during this busy holiday season,” he said.
Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, is charged with attempting to blow up a Northwest Airlines plane as it approached Detroit on a flight from Amsterdam with almost 300 people on board.
UPDATE: Thirty minutes later Obama teed off at Luana Hills Country Club.
