  • TSA plans to fire baggage screeners at Boston airport
    The Transportation Security Administration plans to fire six bag-screening officers and suspend 14 others at Boston’s Logan International Airport. A routine audit showed lapses in attention by the officers as they were screening baggage. "All TSA employees are held to the highest standards of conduct and accountability," the TSA said in a statement.
