Eleven passengers walked through a security lane without being screened at Kennedy Airport early Monday because the TSA left the area open and unattended, law enforcement sources said.

A security camera captured a metal detector going off three times as the travelers walked through the screening lane, the sources said.

According to the article Port Authority was not notified for 2 hours and it is thought all boarded.

This is beyond incompetent. Probably more concerned about staying relevant and hoping they could find them and cover up.

Surprised this hasn't made more news. It was on local news (Tx) but this is a national issue

They said the 3 people that set of the metal detector all boarded Jet Blue for California.

Whenever I have had to go through the TSA lines, they were like Nazis, shouting at people that did anything remotely wrong.

They'd have to actually screeners in place to yell at people for that to happen.

According to the Washington Times, the line was "left open and unmanned" and that's how the 11 people got through. Don't worry though, three of the people that flew to California were screened after they landed.....in California. *eyeroll*

There was no screening when I was a kid. I used to pack a bunch of firecrackers, and rockets in my suitcase when I was out of state them smuggle them home. No one ever searched anything ever back then, and my parents didn't even care.

No worries, mine's a different source anyway. I always get tripped up by the google-news thing where it doesn't take you to the actual website but rather just an AMP link. # happens

The TSA hasn't caught a single terrorist since their formation, not a single one...it's all just window dressing!

Totally Senseless Agency = TSA

Billions upon billions upon BILLIONS of taxpayer dollars completely wasted, and the blood loss continues!

Considering the TSA failure rate is like 95+ percent, does it really matter if people are screened or not?

Airport "security" is an illusion, it's probably the largest government failure there is. Which is a HUGE feat.

I think it's called security theater it gives the illusion of protection.
Also it conditions people to more invasive measures.

Gee, I'd be worried about the ethnicity of these individuals with all the scare tactics being thrown at us as of late.

They were able to identify all of them from video and did screen them at their destination.
We got lucky that nothing happened.
Keys earnings watches all set off metal detectors.

I've never encountered that and I've dealt with them in Las Vegas and LAX where the crazies gather.
Nice as could be. Thorough and slow but not mean.

Depends on the kind of watch. The one I use for travel never sets it off, including today.

And no, I didn't do the self-screening like in the Original Post, I was a nice guy and went through the manned Pre-Check lane.

I found that the ones working for the NY/NJ PA are the worst in the country. Miserable and surly.

They are followed closely by the ones in Philthadelphia.
