  • TSA is Broken
    TSA only provides an illusion of security but is nothing more than a jobs program for the unemployable. After sixty billion dollars over eight years they can't cite one success. In two separate GAO tests in 2011, TSA failed to detect weapons 70% of the time and 60% of the freight in the cargo-hold remains unscreened. They confiscate items their website says are allowed while four of their screeners are caught smuggling drugs through security. There have been 10 TSA screeners arrested this year and 62 TSA screeners were arrested in 2011 for crimes, including rape and murder. Of those, eleven were for sex crimes involving children and four for smuggling contraband through security, which could have easily been explosives. They can’t prevent crime within their own ranks, but we’re supposed to trust this agency with airport security. This agency is a national disgrace and complete failure. The lack of responsible management explains why so many abuses and failures continue to occur. TSA is too broken to be reformed and must be replaced with something that actually works.
