    Last May, TSA News writer Bill Fisher reported on the TSA’s backlog of background checks at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport.​
    The post was titled “TSA incompetence at nation’s busiest airport.”​
    Well, now comes word that lots of people are floating around behind the scenes, in the so-called sterile areas of airports, without background checks.​
    So again, as we keep pointing out, while the TSA is busy sticking its hands down your pants, terrorizing children in wheelchairs, and robbing you blind, it’s letting all kinds of people, including those with criminal records, roam around freely.​
    From Homeland Security Today:
    “As a result, airports nationwide experienced difficulties causing a backlog of background checks. To address the backlog, TSA temporarily allowed airports to issue badges without the required background checks,” the report stated. “Consequently, according to records available for our review, at least five airports granted badges to individuals with criminal records, giving them access to secured airport areas. TSA did not track which airports temporarily issued badges to individuals without the required background checks.
    “Therefore, some individuals with criminal records may still have access to secured areas in our nation’s airports,” the report warned.
    Sheesh. How can $8 billion a year possibly be enough? You just can’t please some people.

    CNS News: TSA Allowed at Least 11 Airport Employees With Criminal Backgrounds To Receive Security Badges

    The Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) mismanagement of a program responsible for issuing security badges to aviation employees resulted in at least 11 individuals with criminal backgrounds obtaining badges that allowed access to secure areas of U.S. airports.


    The OIG concluded that there still may be individuals with criminal records who are working in secured areas of airports. The OIG told CNSNews.com that the TSA has not completed a review as of Mar. 8 to determine whether or not there are still individuals whose badges need to be deactivated.

    Oh, wait.........


    Can Pistole's Perverts do anything right?

    How can we have any confidence in any TSA program when TSA proves over and over again that the agency is just a bunch of incompetent crotch grabbers?

    Time for a change. Pistole should be dismissed and returned to Gitmo with the rest of his Terrorist buddies.
