Flight Security

So apparently airport security goofed up and let someone on a plane that shouldn't have been on a plane, and in addition, he was also allowed to board the plane with banned materials. 

In response to their mistake, law abiding citizens will now have new rules to live by when flying.  I don't exactly understand what they are yet, so I am not going to jump to conclusions.  But doesn't this seem like a case of someone's mistake resulting in aggravation for everyone else?
