Representatives who've seen a classified Government Accountability Office report have different opinions on what it says about airport security.

Rep John Mica (R-FL) says it shows private screeners do a better job of finding dangerous objects than the government's Transportation Security Administration.

Rep Peter DeFazio (D-OR) says the report's findings are statistically insignificant and airports should keep TSA screeners.

The report compared TSA screened airports with work at the five airports still allowed to have private screeners after 9/11. All five have federal government supervision of their private screeners. (BaltSun)
