• DEAR GOD: TSA Fails 95% of Airport Security Tests

    The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has finally been exposed as the massive waste of taxpayer dollars that it’s always been.

    While conducting a large-scale sting operation, undercover government agents managed to smuggle weapons, explosives, and fake drugs through TSA security checkpoints at several of America’s largest and busiest airports.

    According to a new bombshell report made public Monday, on 67 out of 70 attempts, undercover agents were able to sneak dangerous objects passed agents of the government outfit tasked specifically to stop such activities.

    The Department of Homeland Security, which operates the TSA, released the embarrassing report. The revelations have caused an administrative shakeup within the department, according to MSNBC:

    The alarming finding led to the immediate reassignment of TSA head Melvin Carraway, the acting administrator for the TSA. He will be replaced by Acting Deputy Director Mark Hatfield until a new acting administrator is appointed. Carraway, an 11-year TSA veteran, has been moved to Homeland Security headquarters, where he will work to coordinate federal programs with local law enforcement agencies.

    President Obama nominated Coast Guard Vice Admiral Pete Neffenger to be the next administrator of the Transportation Security Administration. “I urge the Senate to confirm this nomination as quickly as possible,” Homeland Security Secretary Johnson said in a statement Monday.

    Moving a few deck chairs on a sinking ship is a huge waste of time. Which is fitting considering that the TSA is a huge waste of your money.

    Obama won’t admit it, but America’s entire so-called “security” apparatus needs a massive overhaul.

    Some agencies like the TSA need to be completely abolished. Other programs, like the National Security Agency’s data collection initiative, need to be diminished significantly if not entirely.

    The new TSA revelations are just the latest in a long line of big government failures. They always promise positive results and just end up wasting your money and delivering big piles of crap.
