WASHINGTON, Dec. 8 (UPI) -- U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, says the inadvertent posting on the Internet of airport screening procedures is a massive security breech.
The manual shows sample CIA and other law enforcement credentials and reveals the limitations of x-ray screening machines, ABC News reported Tuesday.
"This manual provides a road map to those who would do us harm," Collins told ABC News. "The detailed information could help terrorists evade airport security measures."
A TSA spokesperson said the document posted online is an outdated version "improperly posted by the agency to the Federal Business Opportunities Web site wherein redacted material was not properly protected."
The TSA said it is conducting a full review of the security breech.
"TSA has many layers of security to keep the traveling public safe and to constantly adapt to evolving threats," the agency said in a statement. "TSA is confident that screening procedures currently in place remain strong."
