Minneapolis TSA Reportedly Fail 95 Percent of Airport Security Probes

There’s trouble at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Considering the importance for TSA screeners to make sure no prohibited items get through security checks, shockingly, leaked information exposes the screener’s failures.

The airport’s screeners “reportedly failed 95 percent of security tests conducted earlier this month.”

Fox News reports:

Agents from the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of the Inspector General regularly pose as travelers and attempt to bring prohibited items such as weapons, explosives or drugs into the secure areas of American airports. The covert group, known as the “Red Team,” tried their luck at the Minneapolis airport, smuggling various contraband through security.

The team reportedly breached security successfully 17 out of 18 times.

According to the story, prohibited items discovered at Portland, Houston, and Wichita airports, for example, included fireworks and firearms in carry-on bags.

A TSA review from 2016 reported over 3,000 loaded firearms was discovered at airports around the country in carry-on bags.

Each year, the TSA releases a review of the previous year, revealing how many firearms were discovered during TSA screenings in airports across the U.S.

Of the 738,318,264 passengers screened by TSA officers in 2016, there were 3,391 firearms found in carry-on bags at checkpoints. Of those, 83 percent were loaded.
