Reporter stopped by TSA agent who didn't know District of Columbia was part of the U.S.
You just can't make this sh*t up!
It's something most students learn in middle school: the United States is made up of 50 states and the District of Columbia. But that's a lesson Orlando TSA agents seemed to have missed.
A D.C. reporter was told by at TSA agent that his drivers license wasn't a valid form of ID while traveling through the Orlando Airport. He was told he'd need a passport to fly. Luckily, he found a TSA supervisor who was familiar with this part of our country, and he was able to make it on his flight home.
After researching further, the reporter discovered this wasn't an isolated issue. Now, all TSA agents at the Orlando Airport are being shown copies of Washington, D.C. licenses to make sure they are familiar with them.
Boy, you certainly feel safe when multiple TSA agents don't know that a D.C. license is a valid form of identification!
Apparently, TSA agents DON'T know that Washington, D.C. is part of our country! How's that for national security?
