A US Marine was arrested today at Logan International Airport after federal airport screeners discovered a gun, bomb-making materials, and ammunition in his checked baggage, State Police and Transportation Security Administration officials said.
Davis said TSA was "actively investigating" why the gun and explosive materials were not detected during the screening in Las Vegas.
Reed's bags had to be screened again at Logan because baggage handlers inadvertently routed them to baggage claim instead of onto his connecting flight to Charlotte.

Perhaps he was a plant to see if he could or would get caught.
The screening details are askew.
Hmmmm.....there should be more news and comments forthcoming.

He definitely could have done this himself but it's just way to coincidental that this happens right after all the flack over the DHS report. It is fishy for sure....

Secondly, who is dumb enough to bring these things on a plane in the first place? Especially a US Marine who obviously would have the knowledge of security and check procedures.
