Schumer Calls For Federal Probe Of TSA


(New York, NY) -- New York Senator Chuck Schumer is calling on the inspector general of the Department of Homeland Security to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of Transportation Security Administration operations at the three New York City area airports.

Schumer is making his demands after there have been three TSA related security breaches, one at each of the airports.

Two of the incidents, the first at Newark and then a second at Kennedy, involved a passenger being able to access a restricted area of the airport. The third incident, reported this week, involved a TSA security officer caught sleeping while in uniform.

Schumer says that these incidents raise serious questions about the TSA's operational abilities at the New York City area airports and their ability to stop a would-be terrorist.
