Unsupervised TSA Agents Fail to Screen Bags for Bombs: Report

Unsupervised TSA agents at an international airport repeatedly failed to screen bags for explosives before putting them on flights with hundreds of passengers, according to a new report from the Department of Homeland Security's Inspector General.

The IG's report, released today, says that for some months in late 2010, some TSA workers at Honolulu International Airport cleared luggage for transport without first properly screening it for dangerous materials in the airport's well-traveled overseas terminal.

Among other things, the report says, evidence shows [TSA screeners] opening bags, placing notices of inspection inside, and transporting them back to the airline without screening them.
