TSA Nominee Has Withdrawn His Name: MG (Ret) Robert Harding

The nominee for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has withdrawn his name.  Senators have been questioning his business firms' (he owned Harding Security Associates) past government and defense contracts.  He is a retired Major General with 33 years service.  Upon retirement he opened a firm providing intelligence and security services.  He sold the firm last year. He reportedly grew frustrated with the Senators accusations and decided to withdraw his name.  More than likely another example of our Congress discouraging a patriotic and well-qualified citizen from continuing to serve their country.  Read more in "Second TSA nominee withdraws his name", Washington Post, March 27, 2010.
