TSA Unable To Detect 33% Of Land Mines Sent Through Security

Illustration for article titled TSA Unable To Detect 33% Of Land Mines Sent Through Security

A mechanical engineer from the Army's Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey was stopped by TSA officers at Newark Airport after they found two Claymore mines in her bag. This would be a victory for the TSA had they not just let the woman's co-worker through with a similar mine in their checked baggage.

Which government agency deserves your scorn, the one whose employees tried to bring anti-personnel mines (even inert ones) on a plane or the one whose employees didn't detect a third of them?

So one mine out of 3 goes through and this sensationalist headline goes up, "unable to detect 33% of land mines"?
