Obama Relocated When Plane Strayed
By Michael A. Fletcher
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said President Obama was "briefly relocated" after a single-engine airplane strayed into restricted air space near the U.S. Capitol on Friday, sparking a short lockdown at the White House.
Gibbs would not say where Obama was moved to, and he said he had no information on whether first lady Michelle Obama was also relocated. Speaking at his daily press briefing, Gibbs said the president was moved out of an "abundance of caution."
Not long after the incident, Obama appeared in the White House for an event promoting his plans to make college more affordable.
