This fall marks the 10th anniversary of the creation of the Transportation Security Administration. Although some travelers find the TSA's methods intrusive, the agency says it has reduced security risks and thwarted millions of potential threats. "We've found 50 million prohibited items -- 4,600 firearms; thousands of items that could have gotten through that could have posed a potential threat to the air traveler," said TSA spokesman Luis Casanova.
