An undercover agent with the Transportation Security Administration was able to hide a gun in her bra and get through security at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport without being detected — several times, according to a TSA source.

“In this case, where they had a test, it was just a dismal failure, as I’m told,” said Larry Wansley, former head of security at American Airlines. “You’ve got a problem, especially with a firearm.”

None of the TSA agents who failed to spot the gun on the scanned image were disciplined, the TSA source disclosed.

TSA agents say the scanners are effective, but only if the agents monitoring them are paying attention, according to NBC.
