The Transportation Security Administration has shelved $184 million in security equipment in a Texas warehouse rather than in the airports for which it was bought, according to a report compiled by House Republican investigators.
The scathing report will be presented Wednesday at a joint hearing of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. David R. Nicholson, chief financial officer of the TSA, and Charles K. Edwards, acting inspector general of the Department of Homeland Security, are scheduled to testify. The committees also will hear from Stephen M. Lord, homeland security director at the Government Accountability Office and past critic of TSA performance. - The Washington Post
