Feds Investigate Newark Airport Screwup; Perp Split After Causing Chaos
The security breach that screwed up Newark Airport for six hours yesterday is being investigated and -- questions remain!
Apparently the guy who went in the out door of the Transportation Security Administration checkpoint in Terminal C left 20 minutes after he arrived. Maybe he just wanted to see if he could do it. If so, we should be hearing about it on MySpace soon.
The Times reports video review shows a security guard stationed at the clearly-marked exit "did not react when the man went through the door," and a TSA spokesman ominously says it "remains to be seen" whether the guard actually saw the man, which suggests a really bad day for the guard and maybe a change of career.
It is rumored that in response to the incident, TSA will adopt some new, useless rules.
