The Transportation Security Administration is plagued by significant problems, a congressional report said Wednesday on the 10th anniversary of Congress creating the agency.

According to the report “A Decade Later: A Call for TSA Reform,” the problems include:

  1. A bloated bureaucracy with 65,000 workers.
  2. An ineffective agency with 25,000 security breaches in the last decade.
  3. A buyer of inadequate technology, including 500 advanced-imaging technology machines that are “easily thwarted.”

“Unfortunately, TSA has lost its way,” Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, said during a Wednesday news conference at Reagan National Airport near Washington.
