Transportation Deputy Secretary Michael Jackson is chairing a "war room" team that is managing the overall effort. Mineta tapped Kip Hawley, a shipping executive who served in the previous Bush administration, to coordinate the war room effort. Mineta also unveiled two goals that will guide officials as they design the new security agency. The department will aim to move all passengers through airport security checkpoints within 10 minutes and deploy "several thousand" new sky marshals by June 2002, he said.
