TSA Failures Bring Concerns as President Announces America Will Be Accepting Syrian Refugees

President Barack Obama tweeted just last week that the U.S. would be welcoming some 10,000 Syrian refugees. This has raised concerns in light of the deadly plane crash in Egypt, and a Transportation Security Administration report that came out months ago.

Russia confirmed last week that the crash of an Egyptian plane that killed 224 people in October was due to a bomb and that it was an inside job. According to Alexander Bortnikov, head of the FSB security service, the crash was "unequivocally a terrorist act."

Earlier this year, a report criticized the TSA for some serious security mistakes. According to the report, the department's process for vetting airport workers is lacking. The report alleges that “73 individuals with terrorism-related category codes” were given access to 'secure' areas.

A Breitbart News report found that the TSA misses weapons an alarming 75 percent of the time, despite assurances that screening processes are effective. ABC News conducted an investigation as well and announced that “several dozen suspected terrorist bombmakers” crossed the border into America in 2009 under the guise of being war refugees.

With multiple reports coming to light of TSA’s shortcomings, it’s hard to muster faith in the government in light of the president’s recent announcement.

"Don't worry, the gov't that misses weapons on airplanes 95% of the time will vet Syrian refugees with 100% accuracy," tweets Breibart writer John Hayward.

Is there anyone left who is optimistic enough to believe that?
