Despite years of government efforts, airport security is still failing.
 
John Roth, the Inspector General of the Department of Homeland Security, told a House panel that there are still problems with the Transportation Security Administration at "every airport."

"We found layers of security simply missing," Roth testified before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
    
It's the latest report to find difficulties with the TSA. A previous investigation found that people could get fake explosives and weapons past security.
    
Meanwhile, the inspector general said the TSA is making progress on improving security.

"I am hopeful that the days of TSA sweeping its problems under the rug and simply ignoring the findings and recommendations … are coming to an end," he said.

But Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., said he's convinced the system cannot be fixed.
