The TSA Is Even More Useless Than You Thought

David Kravets, writing for Ars Technica:

Transportation Security Administration screeners allowed banned weapons and mock explosives through airport security checkpoints 95 percent of the time, according to the agency’s own undercover testing.

ABC News reported the results on Monday, but Ars could not independently confirm them. According to ABC News, a Homeland Security Inspector General report showed that agents failed to detect weapons and explosives in 67 out of 70 undercover operations.

Just shut them down.

(I was going to link directly to the ABC News page, but in Safari on my Mac, it doesn’t let me scroll and the video autoplays, so screw them.)
