Description

In mid-1996 WLS-TV obtained classified FAA test results that also put forth O'Hare as the world's riskiest airport per passenger: with undercover agents able to sneak through faux bombs at an alarming rate. The story looks at security checkpoint agents, janitors and maintenance employees pressed into service as bomb-sniffers when they had not training nor wherewithal to perform such jobs.
