Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano today applauded President Obama's intent to nominate Major General Robert A. Harding, U.S. Army (Retired), as Assistant Secretary for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

"Effective transportation security involves protecting our citizens from constantly evolving threats while facilitating legal travel and trade around the country and throughout the world," said Secretary Napolitano. "Bob's national security expertise and extensive experience in the Intelligence Community and U.S. Army will be a great asset to the Department in our efforts to ensure the safety of the nation's transportation systems."

As TSA Assistant Secretary, Harding will leverage his extensive national security and intelligence experience while overseeing efforts to protect America's aviation network, railroads, ports and mass transit systems, security operations for 450 federalized airports throughout the nation, and the Federal Air Marshal Service (FAMS).
