Acting TSA head reassigned after watchdog report reveals airport security failings | Fox NewsThe acting head of the Transportation Security Administration was reassigned late Monday after an inspector general's report revealed that undercover agents were able to sneak fake explosives and banned weapons through checkpoints as part of an investigation that revealed a massive, system-wide security failure at America's airports.
Homeland Security officials confirmed to Fox News earlier Monday that TSA screeners failed 67 out of 70 tests -- or 96 percent -- carried out by special Department of Homeland Security investigators known as "red teams."
I am not surprised that 67 out 70 tests involving explosives and guns end up in failures. I am surprised that at the same time an unopened can is considered to be a weapon in the hands of a Muslim woman.
How TSA and airlines address the problem of security risks: a defenseless Muslim woman is being attacked be a flight attendant and a white passenger for asking an unopened can of soda.
How TSA and airlines should address the problem: work on existing security systems, make decisions based on objective reasons instead of discriminating against certain groups of passengers.
