(NaturalNews) If you think the establishment of the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) after 9/11 has really helped to make the skies safer, think again. A new report issued by the House Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on National Security, Homeland Defense and Foreign Operations, says that since November 2001, there have been more than 25,000 airport security breaches, ranging from minor incidents like baggage accidentally being left behind, to major breaches like travelers bypassing security lines and bringing various weapons onto airplanes.

The report explains that there have been more than 14,000 incidents of individuals getting into secure areas, including into the secure side of airports, without going through TSA screening.

TSA screeners have also personally failed to properly screen travelers about 6,000 times, while more than 2,600 travelers somehow successfully got through the security line without undergoing the normal screening procedures.

If that is not bad enough, NaturalNews has been tracking some of the worst TSA security failures throughout the past year, many of which are utterly shocking in light of the agency's aggressive new procedures.

These include subjecting flight crews to naked body scanners and molesting pat downs while ground crews freely move back and forth between secure and insecure areas with a simple card swipe (http://www.naturalnews.com/030844_airline_pi...), as well as undercover agents slipping through the security line on multiple occasions with loaded weapons (http://www.naturalnews.com/031529_TSA_naked_...).

And while all this is taking place, the TSA continues to aggressively screen and pat down special needs individuals, the elderly, young children, young girls on their way to prom, and many others who are the least threatening in society (http://www.naturalnews.com/TSA.html). Clearly there is something majorly wrong with this picture.

Confirming the overall failure of the TSA as a security agency, T.J. Orr, director of aviation at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport in North Carolina, testified before Congress that the TSA operates with " a rigid attitude of arrogance and bureaucracy." Add ignorance and ineptitude to that equation and you have pretty much summed up the TSA to a tee.
