Thousands of checked bags were loaded on board planes crossing the ocean without undergoing security screening. This went on for months.

The TSA tries to downplay the incident:

The TSA said the problems should be put in perspective because they happened at one of Honolulu airport’s 12 baggage security screening areas and the 27 or so TSA employees under investigation make up a small fraction of the agency’s 750 employees in Honolulu.

Meanwhile, it kept paying the employees for their no work jobs.

Perhaps the bigger story should be that the TSA has 750 (!) employees in Honolulu.
