Honolulu Airport Cited by TSA for Security Concerns

Worrisome news from Hawaii today: According to MSNBC, "dozens" of employees at Honolulu's airport were fired or suspended after an investigation found that workers did not screen checked bags for explosives.

The firings and suspensions amounted to the single largest personnel action for misconduct in the TSA's history. The agency said in a statement that 28 workers were "removed," 15 suspended and three resigned or retired. The cases of two other employees were still being decided.

The National Treasury Employees Union, which represents TSA workers, has said the employees faced pressure to make sure flights departed on time.
