Remember a few weeks ago, when the Transportation Security Administration was roundly criticized for pulling air marshalls off some of the most vulnerable flights to cut hotel costs? Well, the brass there wants to make sure nothing like that ever happens again:

The Transportation Security Administration is conducting a “witch hunt” to ferret out and discipline employees in the federal air marshal program who have talked to the media, several sources within the program told MSNBC.com. Some air marshals are even being threatened with having the USA Patriot Act, a law enacted to help fight terrorism, used against them.

Good thing those whiners don't have full civil service protections, or the next time citizens are being endangered by boneheaded bureaucrats, some of them might be tempted to spout off again...
