HONOLULU (AP) — President Barack Obama’s security teams are briefing the vacationing commander in chief on threats facing the United States, including what progress law enforcement officials are making in investigating a terror attack aboard a Detroit-bound airplane.
    Obama on Saturday spoke with homeland security adviser John Brennan and a top National Security Council official, Denis McDonough. The group spoke at 6:20 a.m. local time in Hawaii. Obama’s motorcade left his rented vacation estate for the gym at 6:33 a.m.
    White House spokesman Bill Burton says the president is continuing to monitor the situation.
    The incident took place Friday as Northwest Airlines Flight 253 from Amsterdam prepared to land in Detroit.
