    TSA Source: Armed Agent Slips Past DFW Body Scanner

    An undercover TSA agent was able to get through security at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport with a handgun during testing of the enhanced-imaging body scanners, according to a high-ranking, inside source at the Transportation Security Administration.
    The source said the undercover agent carried a pistol in her undergarments when she put the body scanners to the test. The officer successfully made it through the airport's body scanners every time she tried, the source said.
    "In this case, where they had a test, and it was just a dismal failure as I'm told," said Larry Wansley, former head of security at American Airlines. "As I've heard (it), you got a problem, especially with a fire arm."
    Wansley said covert testing by the TSA is commonplace -- although failing should be rare.
    The TSA insider who blew the whistle on the test also said that none of the TSA agents who failed to spot the gun on the scanned image were disciplined. The source said the agents continue to work the body scanners today.
    Wansley said that is a problem.

    TSA regularly does these covert tests at our checkpoint.

    About a week ago, an UC TSA agent attempted to get through carrying a concealed North American Mini .22. The TSO's detected it, and shut the guy down.

    We don't have the body scanners here, and they were able to catch it with the metal detector and a pat-down.

    If you've never seen one of these, they are tiny.
