    Default TSA Chief re-assigned after big FAIL

    TSA Chief Melvin Carraway Out After Agents Fail 95 Percent of Airport Breach Tests




    http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/...hrough-n367851

    The acting head of the Transportation Security Administration was reassigned Monday after an internal investigation by the Department of Homeland Security found security failures at dozens of the nation's busiest airports. The breaches allowed undercover investigators to smuggle weapons, fake explosives and other contraband through numerous checkpoints.

    Reassigned? If I failed at 10% of my job I'd be fired.

    The guy should be reassigned to the unemployment line.

    I dont think there will ever be a highjacking within the United States ever again because it will just end up being a bunch of muslims getting killed by a plane load of people but it is the lone wolf kind that are scary. Way to go TSA!!

    I'd be interested to see how private security screeners fared compared to the TSA. The TSA has had terrible numbers for years with these types of things and that's been part of the push by Congress to privatize security screenings, but if they aren't doing any better, maybe it's the technology and the methods employed that are the problem.

    It's silly to think that with all of the technology involved that the TSA could be that bad at detecting this stuff. All of your belongings get screened with color coded X-Ray, everyone is screened with the millimeter wave scanner, and some are even patted down. What's the weak link here? Are we all just putting are crap through the scanners for nothing? Or are we getting hit with low doses of radiation for nothing? Or are we getting groped for nothing?

    From the looks of these numbers, it appears all three are useless.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
