Hundreds of TSA Badges Missing

Badges? What badges? I don't got to show you no stinkin' badges.

[From article]
more than 270 badges went missing at the San Diego International Airport in the last two years and more than 1,400 badges missing from Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
Many of the missing badges were not reported for weeks or months in hopes they would be turned it - meaning they were not quickly deactivated.
The information comes following an investigation by a local NBC affiliate in Dallas, TX. They also found reports of missing crew and pilot uniforms.
The TSA is downplaying the report, saying most of the badges require a PIN or hand print in addition to swiping a badge. Experts warn it does not prevent someone from gaining access to the tarmac or other areas and many are calling it an astonishing breach of security that could leave the doors wide open to terrorists.
