TSA has issued subpoenas to two bloggers on travel to try and determine which of their own TSA employees leaked the new directive on increased security, the New York Times reported in yesterday's editions. As is usual with the TSA, their directives are supposed to be secret, even though they enforce them with the public. TSA special agents served subpoenas to travel bloggers Steve Frischling and Chris Elliott, demanding that they reveal who leaked the security directive to them. Both claimed they had little information. Frischling claimed the document simply appeared in his e-mail, and Elliott indicated he would have a statement after talking to his attorney.
