    On the surface, this is "bad", but one has to ask how many lapses involve a failure to engage in "genital rapping" and overlooking such preferred choices of terrorists as dihydro oxide.

    Star Ledger: Secret observers find 'shocking' lapses in Newark airport security, report says

    Screeners at Newark Liberty International Airport are properly executing standard pat-downs of passengers only 16.7 percent of the time and they identify and take appropriate action on prohibited items in only a quarter of all cases, according to a secret internal report.​

    The revelations are contained in a document, obtained by The Star-Ledger, titled "PACE Airport Evaluation" and dated June 8. It was compiled by an undercover team of Transportation Security Administration employees from other airports who were asked to observe screeners at work at Newark Liberty.​
