Disturbing' Undercover Probe Found TSA Screeners Missing Many Test Weapons
Homeland Security was trying to find the vulnerabilities at security checkpoints, and the report claims TSA agents only discovered and stopped the smuggling of 20 percent of the unpermitted items inspectors attempted to get past them.
An undercover operation revealed TSA screenings at airports fail most of the time.
Twitter users questioned whether airports should still use TSA and lamented the security process.
During the House Committee on Homeland Security hearing Wednesday, Republican Rep. Mike Rogers of Alabama told TSA Administrator David Pekoske, "This agency that you run is broken badly, and it needs your attention".
During a public hearing following a classified briefing about the report, Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, said, "Quite frankly, I think I speak for all of us when I say that we found that briefing disturbing".
Word of those security lapses has some travelers at RDU International Airport anxious. Eight undisclosed recommendations have been made to TSA to improve checkpoint security.
Clandestine checkers successfully snuck mock explosives, knives and guns through airport security on more than 70 percent of attempts, CBS News reported.
"We take the OIG's findings very seriously and are implementing measures that will improve screening effectiveness at checkpoints", Pekoske said.
New equipment available would create 3D images of luggage to help screeners spot risky items, but it's only in use at two airports so far.
CBS reports that whether the failure percentage is closer to 70 or 80, that it still represents an improvement than the 95 percent failure rate from just two years ago.
