"The Transportation Security Administration plans to clear 10,000 workers for access to secret intelligence, Fox News has learned.
"The move comes as a slew of security agencies try to improve intelligence-sharing in the wake of the attempted Christmas Day bombing. However, a TSA spokesman told Fox News that the plan to give thousands of workers security clearance was developed in July 2008, and that the background checks started one year ago."
We used to have a saying: 'Three people can keep a secret, if two of them are dead.' If 10K people have access to "classified" information, it ain't classified for long. It should take less than three minutes for this "classified" information to find it's way to the press. And the bad guys.
