TSA posts document on airport screening procedures online In a gaffe called "shocking" and "reckless" by some U.S. lawmakers, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) inadvertently posted a 93-page document containing highly sensitive information on its airport screening procedures on a government Web site. The aviation security manual included details on TSA procedures for screening passengers, special rules for handling the CIA, diplomats and law enforcement officials and the technical settings and tolerances used by metal and explosive detectors used at airports. The document included information on the frequency with which checked bags are to be hand screened for explosives, the names of 12 countries whose citizens are automatically sent to secondary screening and a list of items for which screening is not always required. Also included were images of sample credentials used by members of Congress and the CIA which the TSA said could be easily imitated. Each page of the manual carries the admonition:"NO PART OF THIS RECORD MAY BE DISCLOSED TO PERSONS WITHOUT A 'NEED TO KNOW.' I can hardly wait for the, "it is Bush's fault" crowd on this one.
