Error or 73 TSA Employees Linked to Terror

First we went through the agony of a test with a 96 percent failure rate
Fake bombs, unloaded guns and contraband undetected on its way through the boarding gates
True to form, instead of firing the TSA acting head
Merely reassigned with for all we know an increased salary instead
Now we find that 73 of its employees at airports had not cleared suspected terrorist lists
73 is not a large number given the army TSA employs but a symbol of why ineptness with feds seems to persist
The agency charged with protecting our transportation system from mortal harm
Seems not to have access to the terror list so it could raise an alarm
It only takes one sleeper in a jihadist terror cell
To plant a bomb aboard a plane to turn a flight into a flaming, destructive hell
This time the cards were dealt and we beat the dealer as we did not bust
But how much longer can we be lucky and to the TSA continue to trust?
When do we consider a move to airport security privatize?
In the private sector efficiency and effectiveness most companies empathize
