A major shake-up at the TSA - the Transportation Security Agency - after a government report painted a very unflattering portrait of the agency.

FOX News Radio's Jon Decker reports: 

After an inspector general's report revealed that undercover agents were able to sneak fake explosives and banned weapons through airports checkpoints, the acting head of the TSA - Melvin Carraway - has been reassigned.

Homeland Security officials confirmed to FOX News that TSA screeners failed 67 out of 70 tests -- carried out by special investigators with the Department of Homeland Security.

In the wake of the investigation, the DHS has ordered more training for all TSA personnel, a re-evaluation of airport screening equipment and continued covert testing.
