WASHINGTON Two federal anti-terrorism workers have lost their security clearances. There are allegations they used e-mails to warn family and friends about a threat against New York City's subways three days before it was made public.

An official who doesn't want to be identified says the two federal employees are one employee of the Coast Guard and a former Coast Guard captain who now works for the Transportation Security Administration.



Security in the transit network was ramped up based on an overseas informant's claim there was a plot to bomb the system.



Lawmakers are looking into why New York officials decided to take action while federal authorities discounted the credibility of the informant's information.
