Whistleblower: Port Newark Ill-Prepared for Terrorist Attack

One of the country’s largest ports is not adequately prepared to fend off terrorists, thieves and other criminals, a former Homeland Security agent said, the New York Post reports.

Terrorists “are looking for a weakness, and you’re standing in one of them right now,” Adam Conti, 46, told The Post. “This place is like a piece of Swiss cheese. There are good cops over [here], but they are outnumbered and have no resources.”

Some of the problems the security expert pointed out at Port Newark were high crime, lack of surveillance and east access  to the plant.

Conti said blowing the whistle on the site cost him his job at the Port Authority, the Post reports.
