The Times collected 100 media reports of airport-security breaches since fall 2002, when TSA screeners took over. Screeners say that's a fraction of the incidents, and most are never disclosed.  View breaches by state:

Airport Breach description
Cleveland Hopkins Int'l Airport Two terminals at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport were closed for about an hour after passengers told security that another passenger hadn't gone through screening. The male passenger, who had cut in front of other passengers waiting to be screened, was never identified and probably boarded his flight after everyone was screened a second time, said Tom Cianciolo of TSA operations at the airport. Seventeen departing flights were delayed. The man went through screening and got his bag X-rayed, but then went the wrong way and walked through two unused metal detectors, Cianciolo said.
