Acting Transportation Security Administration (TSA) head Melvin Carraway reassigned
US Department of Homeland Security secretary Jeh Johnson has “reassigned” acting Transportation Security Administration head Melvin Carraway “effective immediately” following a DHS inspector general’s report that revealed weaknesses at US airports’ passenger screening checkpoints. The DHS inspector general’s report, which details “red team” undercover investigators’ efforts to bring banned items through passenger checkpoints, is classified and Johnson is not discussing the specific results. But ABC News reported that red team investigators were able to get “mock explosives or banned weapons through checkpoints in 95% of trials,” and in a statement Johnson cited “vulnerabilities” and “deficiencies” identified by the inspector general. TSA leadership has been instructed to immediately revise its standard operating procedures for screening” and “immediately brief the results of [the inspector general’s] testing to the federal security directors at every airport across the United States.”
