Whistleblowers: TSA an “agency in crisis” as Corruption Exposed at Highest Levels

Like many of the agencies that the Obama administration has dumped American taxpayer dollars into, the TSA has not used that money wisely, apparently.  After spending nearly $550 million on new equipment, the beleaguered agency is actually worse than it was in 2007.  Airports and whistleblowers are confirming what last summer’s undercover DHS tests showed.

More than 100 of the Transportation Security Administration’s 48,000 airport screeners quit each week, and whistle-blowers told congressional investigators that “we remain an agency in crisis.”

The personnel losses affect airport screening times across the country.

“Many airports are complaining that TSA is getting worse, not better,” said House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz .

TSA staffers testified Wednesday that senior employees are often not held accountable for misconduct and the TSA office created a hostile work environment by intimidating personnel by abusing integrity testing.

“These leaders are some of the biggest bullies in government,” Jay Brainard, a TSA security director in Kansas, told committee. “While the new administrator of TSA has made security a much-needed priority once again, make no mistake about it, we remain an agency in crisis.”

Aside from the lapses in security, the biggest complaint about the agency is that workers are stealing expensive items from passengers.  Many flyers are reporting that their jewelry, tablets, and other expensive electronics have been stolen from their bags.  Maybe the Obama administration will dump another $500+ million into the agency so they can be rated even worse in 2025.
