WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Danny Gonzalez said:
“The TSA approach to airport security has been flawed from day one, and we do not believe that the ‘reforms’ suggested from [US Homeland Security] Secretary Jeh Johnson will make any significant improvement in overall security.”
On Monday, Johnson called for a revision of TSA operating procedures, following a series of tests that showed a startlingly high level of TSA failures to identify mock weapons and explosives.
Gonzalez said that the TSA continues spending millions of dollars on high tech equipment in a “futile attempt” to make airport security measures unbiased.
“Our TSA agents need to learn what signs to look for, how to spot a potential security risk based on factors like race, age, sex, and attire,” Gonzalez said.
The TSA continues utilizing inefficient methods of screening all passengers the same, putting more emphasis on political correctness and less stress on common sense, Gonzalez went on.
In May 2015, the Government Accountability Office said in a study that the TSA has yet to eliminate a number of problems in passenger security screening. The report found that security checkpoint personnel made errors in screening passengers, and TSA did not have a process in place to evaluate the causes of the failures.
