Is the TSA capable of keeping America's airports safe?

Former 9/11 Commission co-chair Tom Kean said Wednesday that Americans are safer but "not safe enough" since the 2001 terror attacks on America.
Kean was responding to a recent NBC News/WSJ Poll that says only 26 percent of Americans feel safer now than before September 11, 2001.
"There's still things that we've got to do," the former N.J. governor told "America's Newsroom." "Recommendations, for instance, from our commission that haven't yet been implemented. We're not as safe in TSA as we ought to be even though we're much safer than we used to be."
"It's a continual fight. We've got to get better. They're trying to get better and we've got to stay ahead of them."
Kean said passenger action is still the "best defense" against a potential attack, but new airport screening technology is also helping, contrary to what critics are saying.
"You've got to keep both going," he advised.
