TSA screenings fail to spot weapons most of the time, agency says

In 2015, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) tests failed to spot 95% of the time. Two years later, there is still a 70% failure rate when undercover officers attempt to smuggle weapons and bombs through airport security after a recent test by the DHS Office of Inspector General, reports CBS News.

Eight recommendations have been made to improve screenings. They are classified, but TSA spokespeople said they are implementing new safety measures in response.
