[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/12/30/art.cheneyres.gi.jpg caption="Obama will meet with top security officials Tuesday."]Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama will meet with his top security officials Tuesday to get an update on the inquiry into security lapses that allowed a bombing suspect to board a U.S.-bound flight.

Obama will meet with FBI Director Robert Mueller, Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano Tuesday, an administration official told CNN.

Obama will get an update from Mueller on the FBI's investigation. Obama will get information from Holder on the prosecution of the suspect in the botched Christmas Day airline bombing. And he will get an update from Napolitano on her review on detection capabilities, the official said.

After the meeting, Obama will make public statements about his findings and an initial series of reforms to improve the country's ability to thwart future attempts to carry out terrorist attacks, according to the official.

    President Obama should investigate CHENgang and his sidekick GingGRINCH to be sure they were not behind the attempted terror attack.... I mean, they have to back up their LYING RHETORIC!!!

    Why wasn't the information passed through the different agencies when this man's father made it clear his son was a terrorist?????? Think about it!!!!

    The far-right RepubliCAN'Ts would sacrifice the lives of American people just to get their LYING points across!!! Think about it!!!

    CHENgang and GinGRINCH are "constantly" setting fear in the American people that "something" is going to happen and TRYING to make it clear it would be President Obama's fault if it does happen. So in my opinion, what is left, -- a TERROR ATTACK................THINK ABOUT IT!!!
