Reps. Peter King (R - NY), Charles Dent (R - PA) and Gus Bilirakis (R - FL) have asked the Department of Homeland Security what can be done to bar or criminally penalize whistleblower sites that reposted a sensitive airport-screening manual that was published on the Internet's by a government worker. They also asked about enacting regulations that would bar such publication in the future. The congressmen are outraged that sites like Cryptome and Wikileaks republished the manual after it was posted online by a government contractor working for the Transportation Security Administration. The manual was posted last March on a government procurement site and was discovered Sunday by a blogger.
