  • Column: Pistole defends TSA’s size at hearing
    Transportation Security Administrator John Pistole defended the TSA at a recent hearing, writes Joe Davidson in the Washington Post. Davidson notes that the TSA’s reputation has recently come under fire from lawmakers who complain that it is too big. When asked if the TSA could still do its job effectively with a significantly reduced staff, Pistole said no. John Gage, president of the American Federation of Government Employees, also agreed that large cuts are not necessary. “TSA is fairly efficient,” he said. “I think it really has an outstanding record. . . . This is not a job you can try to do on the cheap.” The Washington Post (6/12) sm_share.gifLinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
