TSA 70% Failure Rate finding guns, knives and bomb parts. Some guy with the name Farid Seif says he accidentally left a gun in his carry-on bag and it got through the airport screeners. He's lucky they didn't find it; with that name he could be in Guantanamo right now.

Authorities tell ABC News the incident is not uncommon, but how often it occurs is a closely guarded government secret. Experts say every year since the September 11 attacks, federal agencies have conducted random, covert tests of airport security.

A person briefed on the latest tests tells ABC News the failure rate approaches 70 percent at some major airports. Two weeks ago, TSA's new director said every test gun, bomb part or knife got past screeners at some airports.

"It's very concerning. I'm very scared. First of al, I can't even believe it could happen," traveler Joy Mansfield said.

"It makes you wonder what exactly all the security hoopla is all about if a loaded gun can go through," traveler Leeza Erfesoglou said.-Man boards plane at IAH with loaded gun in carry-on

Ah, there's no wondering about it, dear Leeza, because it's never about security, it's about control and forcing the people to submit to the state's illegitimate authority.
