Airport Security Breach Delays Holiday Travelers

The Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport:

“An image of a revolver appeared on the X-ray,” said Paul Wisniewski, the airport’s federal security director.

“It occurred when X-ray operators were changing positions, relieving each other, which caused some confusion,” said Wisniewski. The passenger was allowed to proceed because of that.”

Once police caught up with the passenger, they found no gun so they cleared the concourses and began their search.

They never found it, however

believe it is no longer in the airport

The moral of the story is: Sneak your revolver onto an airplane while the security personnel are changing positions. It’s apparently okay then.

Thank goodness they got that gun out of the airport. (via Michelle Malkin)
