TSA New ID Scanner Not Working

Well its no surprise to us that the TSA’s new ID Scanner system doesn’t work as advertised.  After spending 130 Million tax dollars on 3 vendors who each are supposed to create a system of ID Checkers to catch fake IDs, its not working as expected.  See this article.  I bet if they TSA had spent just 1 Million dollars on ID Scanners from some rinky dink company like this, they would have had a better solution.   The GAO reports this solution doesn’t check drivers licenses against state databases, which even the car rental companies do before your rent a car!  The ID Scanning solution is basically not living up to the promised objectives – sort of like full body scanners.  Truly Amazing how tax dollars are spent.
