60% of Fake Bombs sent through security to test the screener’s efficiency managed to make it past security.
But don’t worry everyone! They’re improving!
The article doesn’t say what they improved from (hopefully it’s not an improvement from a 100% smuggle rate, that would be too scary), but the important thing is that they are making progress, right?
Either way, it kinda scares me that they seem somewhat happy about their improvement, since more than half the bombs are still going through.
I suppose they just wanted to avoid people pannicking unnecisarilly, since they must be catching the real bombs, judging by the fact that we haven’t had a problem since the shoe bomb guy.
I’m just going to think that the screeners have been catching all the real ones instead of thinking that the terrorists simply haven’t tried for a long time.
Either way, with continued tests, we should be efficient soon enough.
Don’t worry, we’ll know without question if we aren’t effective enough.
