A Homeland Security spokesperson said that "the numbers in these reports never look good out of context,

but they are a critical element in the continual evolution of our aviation security."
And just what 'context', I am moved to wonder, would make this look better:
...airport screeners failed to detect explosives and weapons in nearly every test that an undercover team conducted at dozens of airports.

According to a report based on an internal investigation, "red teams" with the Department of Homeland Security's Office of the Inspector General were able to get banned items through the screening process in 67 out of 70 tests it conducted across the nation.
Yep.  Somehow 'context' would make this seem less a near-complete failure by the Touching Special Areas people to do their job.

Dump the whole damned bunch and let the airlines/airports handle it.
