he Transportation Security Administration was supposed to be Big Government’s solution to the supposedly “lax” airport security prior to the 9/11 attacks that contributed to the worst terrorist assault in the nation’s history. Only, like all Big Government “solutions,” the TSA has failed to live up to its hype, let alone justify its massive annual budget.

Miserably, in fact.

As reported by NBC News, an undercover investigative news team sought to test airport security and TSA capabilities recently, and what they discovered was shocking: On three of four occasions, TSA inspectors failed to find banned items in the team’s carry-on luggage – items that included a box cutter (which is what the 9/11 attackers used to take over their planes), a Swiss Army knife and a long, sharp pair of scissors.

NBC News noted that, in reviewing the results, aviation security expert Anthony Roman called them “a complete and utter failure of the system.”

So terrible were the results, in fact, that the TSA sent the news network its own scathing assessment upon hearing of the undercover investigation.

“It is unacceptable for any prohibited item to pass through security undetected,” said a statement from TSA Administrator Peter Neffenger. “Both the DHS Office of the Inspector General and TSA frequently conduct testing and evaluations of our screening measures so that we can continuously improve our security screening procedures. As a result of this input, TSA has been implementing systematic changes in how we screen passengers and their baggage in order to better deter, detect, and disrupt any potential threat of terrorism.”
