Airport screeners miss 20 of 22 "devices"

Five years after 9/11, when the Gov't tightened security at US airports, and 2 months after retightened security procedures due to the "war on moisture" banning liquids on airplanes......

Screeners at Newark Liberty International Airport failed 20 of 22 security tests conducted by undercover U.S. agents last week, missing an array of concealed bombs and guns at checkpoints throughout the hub's three terminals, federal security officials familiar with the results said.

"We can do better, and training is the path to improved performance," said Mark Hatfield Jr., Newark Airport's federal security director.

Gee Mark do you really think so?
