Homeland Security chief Tom Ridge steps down - AP By Carla Mozee
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS.MW) -- Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge has resigned, the Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Details to follow.


NYT reports: In an e-mail circulated to senior Homeland Security officials, Ridge praised the department as "an extraordinary organization that each day contributes to keeping America safe and free." He also said he was privileged to work with the department's 180,000 employees "who go to work every day dedicated to making our company better and more secure."

A news conference has been set for 2:45 p.m.

Goddess knows what company he's talking about. But I do begin to understand why he hasn't done anything to make American any safer if he's been working for some company all this time.
