Radar showed what appeared to be a plane near White House.

WASHINGTON -- President Bush was rushed to a secure underground White House bunker and Vice President Dick Chenney was whisked outside the compound Wednesday because of a "radar anomaly" -- perhaps a flock of birds or pocket of rain -- that was mistaken for a plane flying in restricted airspace.

The late-morning scare, apparently the first time Bush had been taken to the secure area since Sept. 11, 2001, was determined within minutes to be a false alarm, and business qucikly returned to normal.

Bush was in the Oval Office when the radar picked up something. Helicopters were sent to check it out and found there was no errant aircraft, said Brian Roehrkasse, a Homeland Security Department spokesman.

Tourists hustled away--Before that could be confirmed though, the Secret Service leapt into action.

They moved the president and vice president out of danger, Officers toting shotguns raced around the compound taking up positions. A surface to air missle battery recently installed on the roof of a nearby building was raised to fire position. Some White House staff members were evacuated from the West Wing.Tour group were hustled out of the executive mansion and a park across the street from the White House was cleared.

Some parts of the compound, such as the area where the press is housed, were not notified of the threat or moved.
