Disciplinary actions begun in security posting

December 10, 2009

WASHINGTONWASHINGTON — - The Department of Homeland Security has initiated unspecified personnel actions against individuals involved in the bungled online posting this spring of a government document that revealed airport screening secrets, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told senators Wednesday. A contract employee was responsible for failing to properly redact a 93-page Transportation Security Administration operating manual that was put on a government procurement Web site. "The security of the traveling public has never been put at risk," Napolitano said, repeating earlier TSA statements that the document was out of date.
