Head of TSA Security Fired After Airport Security Lines Get Worse

The head of security at the TSA has been fired. Unfortunately, that’s probably not going to make security lines at airports across the country any better.

From Reuters:

The head of security for the U.S. Transportation Security Administration has been removed from his position, according to an internal TSA memo on Monday seen by Reuters, after the agency was criticized for long lines at airport security checkpoints.

Kelly Hoggan, who had served as TSA assistant administrator for security operations since May 2013, was replaced by his deputy, Darby LaJoye, who will serve on an acting basis, according to the memo from agency head Peter Neffenger.

Do longer security lines make flying any safer? I really question the logic of the TSA.
