Washington (CNN) -- A long-awaited report on alleged misconduct within the Federal Air Marshal Service concludes that while supervisors do not engage in "widespread" discrimination and retaliation against rank-and-file air marshals, the agency is far from trouble-free.
- Investigators say they "heard too many negative ... accounts" of misconduct to dismiss them
- A "substantial percentage" of air marshals report supervisor problems, a report says
- But the report also says rank-and-file air marshals share in the blame
- The agency's mission has not been compromised by the troubles, he report says.
