WASHINGTON (AP) - NASA braced quickly for the intense investigation into the Columbia disaster, according to newly disclosed e-mails that include one
proposal by a midlevel employee at headquarters for a ``complete scrub'' of the agency's safety office Web site to remove outdated or wrong
The employee, Wilson Harkins, warned that such information could become ``chum in the water to reporters and congressmen.''
``We wouldn't want to be sucker punched by someone based on something we have posted,'' Harkins wrote.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration records show that 18 routine documents were added to the Web site since the Feb. 1 shuttle accident and
