More Airport Security Badges Missing:
AS REPORTED BY NBC NEWS AND FOX NEWS TODAY:
Washington lawmakers are demanding an accounting of how many airport security badges have been lost or stolen around the country as an NBC News investigation reveals the problem may be bigger than originally thought.
“Clearly there are an awful lot of things falling through the cracks and there’s just no room for error when it comes to this issue. We need answers. They’re not providing them,” said Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), who chairs the Transportation Committee.
Thune and two other committee members have sent a letter to the Transportation Security Administration seeking more information.

Hundreds of Airport Security Badges Lost or Stolen March 2015
NBC News investigation has found that hundreds of ID badges that let airport workers roam the nation’s busiest hub have been stolen or lost in the last two years. While experts say the missing tags are a source of concern because they could fall into the wrong hands, officials at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport insist they don’t pose “a significant security threat.” The wayward badges came to light when NBC-DFW asked airports across the country to reveal how many of them were unaccounted for.
