Twelve hundred of screeners were fired by the TSA after it was discovered they lied about their criminal records on their job applications.

It's a disturbing example of how many TSA screeners were hired without proper background checks.

The Department of Hmeland Security says 18 thousand who didn't clear background checks last year were hired because of a rush to meet security requirements. Eighty-five of them were convicted felons.
