As if most Americans and travelers in the United States needed another reason to believe the TSA is utterly useless.
Well now you have yet another reason – in conducting their own tests for explosives, they missed a whopping 95%. That`s correct, they missed almost ALL of them.
From the Washington Examiner:
Security failures by the Transportation Security Administration allowed fake explosives and weapons through at dozens of the nation’s busiest airports.
The internal tests were conducted by Homeland Security Red Teams, undercover investigators who pose as passengers with harmful objects hoping to get through TSA security checkpoints. According to a recently released Homeland Security Inspector General report, Red Team members were able to get through security checkpoints with potential weapons in 67 out of 70 tests.
“Upon learning the initial findings of the Office of Inspector General’s report, [Homeland Security] Secretary [Jeh C.] Johnson immediately directed TSA to implement a series of actions, several of which are now in place, to address the issues raised in the report,” TSA told ABC News in a statement, though the statement did not identify the fixes.
How about the TSA be dismantled? They haven’t stopped even ONE terrorist attack in the entire time they’ve been in place.
All the TSA has done is sexually molest people, including the elderly and children, who simply want to fly from one place to another.
If you’ve ever been to an airport you can see what little purpose they serve. There are more TSA agents standing around doing nothing than there are passengers in some airports.
Who would have thought there would be a more useless federal agency than the Department of Energy?
