'He Has Air Force One...': Greta Questions Obama's 'Confidence' in TSA
After the TSA failed miserably in a Homeland Security-administered test of its airport screening procedures, the White House emphasized that the president is confident in the agency.
"The president does believe the American people should feel confident in traveling in airports all across the country because there are security measures in place to protect the American traveling public," said Josh Earnest on Tuesday.
His comments came after an internal investigation revealed a massive, system-wide security failure at a number of airports in the United States. Undercover agents, known as "red teams," were able to sneak fake explosives and weapons through TSA checkpoints, with TSA agents almost failing to pass any of the 70 tests.
In her "Off the Record" commentary, Greta Van Susteren questioned whether it's going to take a horrific attack on an airliner for things to improve with the TSA.
"It's so outrageous that I really don't know what to say," she said.
She called out President Obama for expressing confidence in the agency, pointing out that the president and his family don't have to travel on commercial airliners.
"Maybe the White House feels [confident.] The president has Air Force One and we Americans make sure it's safe for him, as we should. But what about the American people? Who is taking care of them? Why do they have to fly 'Scare Air'?"
