Rep. Adam Schiff on Airport Security: 'When We Test the TSA, They Fail'

Rep. Adam Schiff on Airport Security: 'When We Test the TSA, They Fail'The effectiveness of security at foreign airports has come into question in the wake of last weekend’s deadly Russian jet crash after takeoff from Egypt’s Sharm El Sheikh Airport, and today, Rep. Adam Schiff said security is a problem at United States airports as well. When we test the TSA, they fail,” Schiff told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos today on “This Week.” “And I think we really need to step up our security here.” Schiff, D-California, is the ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which oversees components of agencies including the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security. An internal investigation of the Transportation Security Administration revealed security failures at dozens of the nation’s busiest airports, where undercover investigators were able to smuggle mock explosives or banned weapons through checkpoints in 95 percent of trials, ABC News learned this summer.
