[sociallocker]In Orlando Florida, a reporter was flying out of Orlando International Airport and when he reached the TSA checkpoint and surrendered his ID to his surprise the TSA agent wasn’t aware that Washington DC was in fact in the United States.
Yes the United States is made up of 50 states and Washington DC, now its not the job of TSA to teach elementary level geography but it underlines a major problem in the United States these days wit an uneducated populous which will only become worse as more illegals flood our streets.[/sociallocker]
Perhaps TSA needs to hire employees who have high school diplomas? what do you think?
Critics of the TSA said that what happened to Gray is a sign that the problems at TSA are bigger than just not knowing geography.
“They simply have not been either applying or maintaining standards for good personnel,” said Douglas Kidd, with the National Association of Airline Passengers.
A TSA spokesman contacted Gray just minutes after he tweeted about the problem. He confirmed that a District of Columbia license is an acceptable form ID.
The spokesman said, “Officers are trained to identify fraudulent documents, which can potentially deter and detect individuals attempting to circumvent this layer of security.”
“It makes you wonder what’s going on with their training and their policies,” said Kidd.
A TSA spokesman told Gray that all of the TSA agents in Orlando are being shown copies of District of Columbia driver’s license.
