Two security breaches at Newark airport, chaos ensues

Both alarms were due to explosive alerts; one on the hands of a passenger, the other on checked luggage.  I guess looking at naked passengers just got too monotonous and no one was paying attention until after the fact.  It's time to get rid of the TSA (Thousands of Sexual Assaults)

Security breaches at Newark Airport

MYFOXNY.COM -Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officials say United Airlines checkpoint operations at Terminal C at Newark Liberty International Airport were shut down Sunday after TSA and local authorities tried to find a passenger that wasn't fully screened.

The Terminal C shutdown threw vacation plans and flight connections into chaos. Law enforcement sources told Fox 5 News there wasn't just one close call here – there were two and both had to do with potential bomb making materials.

The lines were long and frustration was high at Newark Airport after the incidents. The TSA says a woman who set off an alarm managed to get past a screening point and onto a flight to Cleveland without being checked for what caused the alarm.

The TSA says it notified the Port Authority Police after the incident. The Port Authority says every single passenger had to be re-screened.

Law enforcement sources told Fox 5 News what officials left out of their public statements – that the woman had tested positive for residue of possible explosive material on her hands, and slipped away from the TSA before she could be thoroughly screened.

This is why I only take a train.  Never again will I fly.
