Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano today named a bipartisan task force to consider changes to the nation's color-coded terror warning system.

The group will be led by former White House homeland security adviser Frances Fragos Townsend and former CIA and FBI director William Webster. The group will assess how well the Homeland Security Advisory System informs the public, private sector and government about current threats and needed protective steps, The Post's Spencer S. Hsu reports.
