President Barack Obama will review intelligence assesments Thursday evening on the failed Christmas Day airline bombing.

Obama had set a Thursday deadline for the initial assessment. Earlier on Thursday, the White House said Obama received briefings by both counterterrorism adviser John Brennan and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

Obama, who is in Hawaii with this family, will huddle with his security team in person next week.

"On Tuesday, in Washington, I will meet personally with relevant agency heads to discuss our ongoing reviews as well as security enhancements and intelligence-sharing improvements in our homeland security and counterterrorism operations," he said in a statement released by the White House.

Obama blamed the attack on a "systemic failure" in intelligence and security operations, citing several warning signs about the alleged bomber that should have tipped off the government about the threat he posed.

"I anticipate receiving assessments from several agencies this evening and will review those tonight and over the course of the weekend," Obama said.
