Great: Some Security Lapses at Newark Int’l Airport – Good listeners, Not so good on pat downs, or prohibited items
At least terrorists have someone to talk to while they’re waiting for boarding so they can carry their contraband onto the plane. We’re in the best of hands.
An internal report shows screeners at Newark Liberty International Airport are properly executing standard pat-downs of passengers only 16.7 percent of the time.
The report obtained by The Star-Ledger of Newark (http://bit.ly/R2Q1Xz) also shows that screeners identify and take appropriate action on prohibited items in only a quarter of all cases.
But it also found that in numerous categories, including removing prohibited items found during physical searches and exhibiting good listening skills, screeners performed their duties properly 100 percent of the time.
