We’re supposed to rest easy now that the Federal Government has taken control of airport security screening. After all, the Transporation Security Administration does background checks, although I’ve previously noted that convicted criminals slip through. But at least there’s rigorous testing. Or is there? Apparently the TSA gives test takers the answers in advance.
- The TSA probe, which concluded last month, found that 22 of the 25 questions on the final exam were also on lesson quizzes given during a week of training, Newsday reported Wednesday.
The quizzes, which were open book, were given after each of five lessons, and the final exam was made up of questions from the quizzes, the probe found.
TSA Administrator James Loy said in a letter to Sen. Charles Schumer that there was no wrongdoing because “training was conducted as prescribed by TSA curriculum guidelines.”
Maybe there’s something wrong with the guidelines?
