TSA Agent Didn't Know Where the District of Columbia is Located

A lesson in civics for security workers at one Florida airport. 

Television reporter Justin Gray was heading back to his Wasington D.C. home when he says a TSA agent at Orlando International didn't recognize his driver's license and asked for a passport, which Gray wasn't carrying.

Gray says he soon realized the agent wasn't aware that the District of Columbia was in the U.S. 

Gray eventually made it through security and voiced his complaints to a supervisor and then the rest of the world via Twitter. He tweeted that Washington is ``a bizarre place'' but a passport isn't needed.

As a result of this incident, all Orlando TSA agents are being shown copies of the D.C. driver's license.
