Airport Security Chief Pushed Out Amid TSA Crisis

Kelly Hoggan is out as head of security for the Transportation Security Administration, after long lines at airports across the country drew anger from stranded passengers and irate congressmen alike.

Deputy assistant administrator Darby LaJoye is filling in for Hoggan until the TSA names a full-time replacement, but problems persist as airports brace for a rush of summer travelers.

Here & Now‘s Robin Young talks with veteran aviation journalist Benét Wilson about airport security, interminable lines and what might help untangle the TSA quagmire.
