US President Barack Obama on Monday said he has ordered a review of the nation's watchlist system and of its air safety regulations, and has asked his national security team to keep up the pressure on terrorists aiming to attack the US. US 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, Obama said. The president, issuing a statement Monday during his holiday vacation in Honolulu, said US 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.
