There will be no more private baggage screeners at airports. That's the word coming from the Transportation Security Administration.

The move comes after sixteen airports made the decision to stop using federal screening officers.

David Silverberg is the editor of Homeland Security Today. He tells our producer Scott Carr that TSA workers are hailing the decision by Administrator John Pistole.
