Coast Guard to review D.C. exercise after scare

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Coast Guard promised a "thorough review" after a training incident Friday along the Potomac River briefly triggered concerns about the security of President Obama on the eighth anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

"We are going to take a good, hard look at what we did here today and ensure that if we need to modify procedures, if we need to modify communications, we will do so in the future," said Vice Adm. John Currier of the Coast Guard.
