Security Clearances Pulled in E-Mail Leak
WASHINGTON (AP) - Security clearances were taken away from two federal anti-terrorism employees as investigators look into allegations they warned family and friends about the threat against the New York City subway system three days ahead of the official announcement.

The workers were identified after government security officials began looking into the source for e-mails alluding to the threat that began circulating before New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg went public Oct. 6. Security in the transit network was ramped up based on an overseas informant's claim there was a plot to bomb the system.

The e-mails apparently started with a relative of one worker and a friend of another, who passed on information warning against using the subway system, according to two federal officials familiar with the Homeland Security Department investigation.

3. how long did it take them
to yank Larry Franklin's clearance? And how many other foreign agents of influence in the Pentagon, like Harold Rhode, still maintain their clearances? Quite a double standard.
