    Several TSA agents at Los Angeles International were indicted Wednesday for corruption and drug trafficking. The agents allegedly let suitcases packed with cocaine and methamphetamine through the airport in exchange for thousands of dollars. It's been a bad week for the agency, which on Wednesday defended the pat-down of a crying four-year-old  in the Kansas airport. The California indictment alleges the agents would meet the smugglers and place them in line so that they would be at the monitoring desk when they passed through, then meet them again in the airport bathroom to get their money.
