    The Port Authority is admitting that last week's security breach isn't the first time that surveillance cameras at Newark airport have failed.

    The Port Authority is tight-lipped about the failures, saying only that there had been earlier failures and one following the security breach.

    Meanwhile, New Jersey senator Robert Menendez is calling for upgrades at Newark-Liberty.

    Newer cameras not prone to malfunctions and motion sensors to secure exits are among the upgrades proposed.
