Millions of travelers depend on the TSA to protect them every day. That’s what makes this all the more terrifying…
According to The Political Insider, a recent review of screening and security procedures at the TSA has revealed that 73 workers that were approved for access to secure areas are actually on the terrorist watch list.
A summary of the report reads:
Despite these layered controls, our testing showed that TSA did not identify 73 individuals with terrorism-related category codes. According to TSA data, these individuals were employed by major airlines, airport vendors, and other employers. TSA did not identify these individuals through its vetting operation because it is not authorized to receive all terrorism-related categories under current interagency watchlisting policy.
After a redacted portion, the report continues, “TSA acknowledged that these individuals were cleared for access to secure airport areas despite representing a potential transportation security threat.”
The report also revealed that these “thousands of records” contain “partially incomplete or inaccurate data, such as an initial for a first name and missing social security numbers.”
Both the TSA and the Department of Homeland Security have refused to comment on this so far. It’s disgusting that they are so incompetent that they are literally putting MILLIONS of lives at risk by allowing terrorists to be in the TSA!
