Pres. Obama said today when it comes to terror threats against the U.S. that, "Ultimately, the buck stops with me."
This comes as Pres. Obama released a declassified report on the failed Christmas Day attack on a Detroit-bound jetliner.
Pres. Obama said U.S. intelligence officials had "sufficient information" to stop Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab, who is accused of trying to kill all 290 people aboard Northwest Airlines Flight 253 on December 25. But Pres. Obama said "the dots were never connected" to foil the plot.
Released along with the report was a three-page order from Pres. Obama outlining what various agencies need to do to correct the "inherent systemic weaknesses and human errors."
Tonight we'll show which agencies have been put on notice and let you know what the changes could mean for you the next time you fly.
