Millions In TSA Security Equipment Sits In Warehouse

Wednesday, 09 May 2012 10:50 AM

The Transportation Security Administration has $184 million in security equipment sitting idle in a Texas warehouse, according to a report put together by House Republican investigators that also charges the TSA “provided inaccurate, incomplete, and potentially misleading information . . . to conceal the agency’s mismanagement of warehouse operations,” The Washington Post reported.

The report was to be presented to a joint hearing of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. A number of top officials of the TSA and Homeland Security are scheduled to testify at the hearing.

The report also charged that the TSA deliberately tried to delay investigators from visiting the warehouse in an effort to dispose of unused screening equipment. “When our guys went down there, the manager told them they’d been trying to move stuff out so we wouldn’t see it,” a committee staff member told the Post.
