White House spokesman Scott McClellan said the president was in the underground bunker for a "very short amount of time." He said he believed it was
the first time Bush was taken to the shelter since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
"There were some precautionary measures that were taken. It was quickly learned that it was a false alarm and that all was clear in a very short
amount of time," McClellan said. "Everything is fine."
McClellan said the Secret Service was still investigating the cause of the false alarm. "They're looking into exactly what it was," he added.
Secret Service agents wielding shotguns dispersed tourists during the brief security scare.
On heightened alert after the Sept. 11 airplane attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the White House has had several similar false
alarms involving aircraft.
