Eleven years after the terrorist attacks that led to its creation, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration must become a “leaner, smarter organization,” Representative Mike Rogers said yesterday. Rogers, an Alabama Republican who leads the House Homeland Security subcommittee on transportation security, said TSA should rely more on private companies to screen passengers for possible terrorism threats. “The agency has gone down a troubling path of overspending, limiting private-sector engagement, and failing to sufficiently protect passenger privacy,” Rogers said at a hearing yesterday on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.
