” NEWARK, N.J., March 8 (UPI) – Screeners at New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport failed to find the fake bomb hidden in an undercover agent’s pants, officials say.
“This episode once again demonstrates how Newark Airport is the Ground Zero of TSA failures,” a source told the newspaper.
The agent first went through a magnetometer and then a pat-down. He had a mock improvised explosive device on his person that was not detected.”
