  • “MacLean may still contest his termination before the MSPB, where he may raise the Whistleblower Protection Act and contend that the lack of clarity of the TSA’s 2003 ‘sensitive security information’ regulations is evidence MacLean disseminated the text message under a good faith belief the information did not qualify as ‘sensitive security information.’”
