TSA compromises undercover tests

This coming Tuesday I'm to testify at a House Homeland Security Committee hearing on the revelation that, in at least one instance, TSA intentionally compromised undercover tests of screeners' ability to spot concealed guns, knives, and bombs. (The tests in question were, apparently, those of the Inspector General). It's criminal that TSA apparently cares more about its reputation than the security of the nation. Pretending that screeners are better than they are at spotting deadly weapons won't fool terrorists; it only fools ourselves.
