Book Description:
The terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, exposed a serious weakness in the nation's aviation security. Four hijacked airliners caused more than 3,000 deaths and destroyed the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and part of the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. The United States acted quickly to close this security gap and defend its homeland. On November 19, 2001, President George W. Bush signed an act creating the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). In less than six months after the attacks, this new agency began taking control of security in the country's 429 commercial airports. For the first time in American history, airport security became a federal responsibility. And the government had set itself the monumental task of building the new agency from the ground up within a year. The TSA has had to hire and train 40,000 employees, including baggage screeners, law enforcement officers, and air marshals. In addition to safety in the sky, the TSA guarantees the security for all types of transportation on land and sea. 'The U.S. Transportation Security Administration' looks at the extraordinary effort that created and launched an agency larger than the FBI, the Border Patrol, and the DEA combined. In this book, discover: how the TSA was established; the organization and mission of the agency; how airport security has been improved; new security for aircraft; and, the TSA's plans for land and sea transportation security.
