The acting chief of the Transportation Security Administration was ousted late Monday night after an embarrassing new report found that airport security officers badly failed a new test, missing almost every firearm and explosive investigators tried to sneak by them.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announced the move, saying Melvin Carraway had been “reassigned” to another part of the department and his deputy would take over, serving until the Senate can confirm a new chief.
Earlier in the night Mr. Johnson had said he’d just been given a classified briefing on the inspector general’s findings that found a major loophole in security that could allow people to sneak prohibited items by TSA screeners and into what were supposed to be secure areas of airports.
Mr. Johnson said the preliminary findings were classified and said it wasn’t “appropriate or prudent” to talk about them — but ABC News reported that IG investigators managed to sneak contraband material by TSA screeners in 67 of 70 tests.
Mr. Johnson said he’s demanded TSA come up with new screening procedures aimed at fixing the “specific vulnerabilities” the IG found, and said he’s ordered new training for all TSA officers. He also demanded that equipment be re-tested.
The purpose of the tsa agents is to feel up women and men, strip search wheehchair bound and other severely handicapped persons, perform extreme searches on people over 75 years of age and children under 10 years of age.
To get an exemption from these search procedures, just wear a turban or a burka to the airport.
Nothing will solve this mess unless congress repeals the law that called for the establishment of the tsa, and is signed by the president.. What are the chances of that happening ? Slim to none.
Why not appoint an honorable American? This administration wants a Muslim sympathizer or Communist sympathizer! Once a wolf gets in the hen house it is hard to get them out and the damage already done. If some Americans wanted a black President we should have grabbed Dr. Ben in 2008! It had nothing to do with race, running Obama! It was because Obama is as morally corrupt as many Liberals! Note how they treat Dr. Ben whose parents are both black! He has honor and integrity and supports these MUST values in others!
We certainly see how morally depraved Liberal media has become!
We actually PAY people for this?
These just keep getting better.
Is this a new record for a US government person fired? Oh he was not fired ! shucks maybe there would have been a new record accomplished with him being fired. Boy I wish Obama could be fired.
by the way Hillary is more than a million times worse than Nixon. 27 million given to her organization from Sweden then she turns around and says Sweden can decide on their own with doing business with Iran
