NEW YORK — The new $743 million JetBlue terminal at JFK Airport is a police radio "dead zone" that puts Port Authority cops in a Ground Zero-like communications blackout that has already led to a slew of police injuries, The Post has learned.
The embarrassing gaffe was discovered by PA honchos some six months before the cavernous, 26-gate terminal opened to the public in October 2008, when officials ran down a checklist of safety issues, an agency insider said.
