    Airport security screeners at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport reportedly failed 95 percent of security tests conducted earlier this month - an alarming finding at one of the nation's busiest airports.

    Agents from the Department of Homeland Security's Office of the Inspector General regularly pose as travelers and attempt to bring prohibited items such as weapons, explosives or drugs into the secure areas of American airports. The covert group, known as the "Red Team," tried their luck at the Minneapolis airport, smuggling various contraband through security.

    The team reportedly breached security successfully 17 out of 18 times.

    .....TSA has big problems and let's not have another 9/11 by these wackos before something is done.

    The President is working very hard for us all and it will take time to fix the last eight years of politics and leading from behind.....MAY GOD BLESS US ALL!!!!!
