    Editorial: Newark airport security foul-up, delays point to TSA failings


    "We put up with the inconveniences of post-9/11 air travel, but we bargain it’s worth it undefined if the TSA does its job efficiently. Sunday’s mess is a disheartening sign that the agency still has a way to go. And a lot of explaining to do."

    TSA workers indicted in airport drug-smuggling

    "Starting in January, Cook allegedly began smuggling what he thought was cocaine and heroin through the Atlanta airport for federal agents posing as drug smugglers. The "drugs" he delivered to undercover agents, however, were fake. He moved the packages past security checkpoints while in uniform and was paid thousands of dollars for his involvement, prosecutors said.

    Prosecutors said Cook quit the TSA in February but allegedly recruited Gregory, another TSA officer, to help keep the drug-smuggling operation going. Cook allegedly introduced Gregory to undercover officers posing as drug traffickers and received a referral fee of $1,000."

    Comment:  According to TSA Deputy Administration John Halinski, TSA receives over 1,000 complaints each week! 

    The actual amount of misconduct is far higher, as most people do not report abuse out of fear of retaliation, or because they know their complaints will fall on deaf ears. Time and again TSA management has dismissed complaints with a statement that their employees acted "professionally" and "followed procedure".
