    Plan detailed Cheney agenda at closing ceremonies

    Associated Press

    SALT LAKE CITY -- Secret Service agents shopping for Olympics souvenirs lost a document detailing security plans for Vice President Dick Cheney's appearance at the closing ceremony, according to The Salt Lake City Tribune.

    The agents were at a skateboard and apparel shop near the Rice-Eccles Stadium, where the closing ceremony was held Sunday night.

    According to the store owner, the agents left the document titled "site post assignment log," the newspaper reported. The Salt Lake Tribune reported the story Monday after seeing the document.

    "It had a pretty detailed description about what was going on," said store owner Clayton Greenhalgh, who discovered the document on a counter Sunday after the agents each purchased an $11 Olympics hat.

    Secret Service spokesman Jim Mankin declined comment Tuesday.

    The log described seating arrangements at the stadium for Cheney, his wife and daughter and other dignitaries. It also detailed more than a dozen areas of the stadium where Cheney was to go, the newspaper said.

    The document also reportedly contained the number of Secret Service agents who were to provide security, where they would be stationed, and their specific assignments.

    The log also revealed the "sweep time" -- when agents secured the stadium for Cheney -- hours before his arrival, the newspaper said.

    When Greenhalgh called to report the mistake, a Secret Service representative promised that an agent would pick up the log, the Tribune reported. After 45 minutes, no one had arrived, so he offered to take it to the agency's downtown office.

    In exchange, Greenhalgh requested an autographed picture of Cheney, but was rebuffed and then decided to contact the newspaper, the Tribune said.
