TSA’s issues go beyond long lines: Probes find waste, lapses in security

Christopher Maag reports in The Record that investigators from the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General, the House Committee on Oversight and the Government Accountability Office have uncovered major problems with the TSA.

Last year, agents from the Department of Homeland Security tried to move weapons and imitation bombs through TSA security checkpoints. They succeeded 95% of the tests. Employees who raise concerns are punished.

‘“No one who reports issues is safe at TSA,” Mark Livingston, who works with TSA’s chief risk officer, told Congress in April. “I am concerned that TSA employees responsible for transportation security, intelligence and analysis fear their supervisors more than they fear a potential terrorist threat,” ‘writes Maag.
