The Government Accountability Office has criticised the TSA's efforts at stopping "terrorism". A 2013 study concluded that there is no evidence that the agency's SPOT program, which employed 2,800 as of the study and attempts to scan passengers for suspicious behavior, is at all effective. Only 14 percent of passenger flaggings by TSA officers led to a referral to law enforcement. Only 0.6 percent of TSA flaggings led to an arrest. None were related to "terrorism".[1]
