Senate confirms new TSA administrator, following reports of security gaps at US airports
The Associated Press via U.S. News & World Report
The Senate voted to confirm a new leader for the Transportation Security Administration in the wake of reports of startling security gaps at U.S. airports. Coast Guard Vice Adm. Peter Neffenger was confirmed as the agency's new administrator by a vote of 81-1. Neffenger was nominated by President Barack Obama in April, before revelations that auditors for the Homeland Security Department's inspector general were repeatedly able to sneak mock explosives and weapons through security checkpoints.
