Protecting American airports, which makes life so difficult for passengers, tearing their luggage and ordering to empty their pockets, might well not exist as it is a completely useless decoration without any useful functions. This is the latest report from the Department of Homeland Security.
Employees from the dedicated Red Team of Security have recently conducted an internal investigation of checkpoints at 12 major national airports. During the 70 anonymous tests, department agents tried to go through the gates of guns or explosives. Only in three cases did the TSA's employees thwart such attempts, while the rest were successful.
It should be made clear that the Red Team members were familiar with all the TSA staff protocols so they could develop a plan to exploit potential vulnerabilities in the system.
