In recent weeks, thousands of flyers missed their flights due to being stuck in security lines for up to two hours. The TSA cites a number of factors in the delays, saying it will take time to find a permanent solution.In the above video, Eyewitness News Analyst Lt. Gen. Reginald Centracchio joins us in studio to discuss the troubles facing the TSA and the firing of its head of security earlier this week.
