TSA's Program to Spot Terrorists a $200M Sham?

TSA's Program to Spot Terrorists a $200M Sham? --Gov't Accountability Office Finds Army of Specially Trained "Behavior Detection" Agents Failed to Stop Terrorists 19 May 2010 There's a hidden layer of airport security called "behavior detection," and it involves specially trained Transportation Security Administration employees whose primary mission is to spot terrorists [when they're not molesting 15-year-olds or robbing wheelchair-bound passengers]. About 3,000 of these officers work at 161 U.S. airports -- costing taxpayers nearly $200 million in 2009. This year, the TSA asked Congress for $20 million more to expand the program. But CBS News has learned that the program is failing to catch terrorists. It's never even caught one.
