WASHINGTON (AP) -- The head of security operations at the Transportation Security Administration has been replaced.
 
That's the word from the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
 
Kelly Hoggan's ouster comes amid major problems with the TSA, including massive security lines at airports this summer, causing people to miss their flights.
 
The Homeland Security Inspector General previously revealed that agency employees failed to find dangerous items in more than 95 percent of covert tests at multiple U.S. airports.
