Just exactly what is meant by the sentence..."The agency said that the device was not intended to be detected"?????? If that is exactly what a TSA spokesperson actually said......then any thinking reporter would have asked a follow up question as to what what that was supposed to mean......Is it just me? Or is that TSA statement nearly as confounding as the incident itself? Is ABC News or the author deliberately trying to confuse the typical reader here? Just exactly what is meant by the sentence…”The agency said that the device was not intended to be detected”??????

Unfortunately, the failures were alarming and a joke.
