Well, What Will It Be: Security or a Taxicab?

June 23, 1987|Associated Press

SYDNEY, Australia — Classified security arrangements for Secretary of State George P. Shultz and Defense Secretary Caspar W. Weinberger were accidentally broadcast over a taxi radio network, officials said Monday.

The security breach occurred when Australia's Department of Communications gave U.S. security agents a radio frequency it thought was not used, said Joel Webster, a department spokesman.

However, the messages were clearly heard by the radio dispatcher of Sydney's largest cab company, Taxis Combined.
