Description

CBS reporters, led by a former Federal Aviation Administration security team employee, test eight major airports -- JFK, LaGuardia, Baltimore, Reagan National, Atlanta, St. Louis, Ft. Lauderdale and Los Angeles -- for security flaws. They enter through checkpoints with lead-lined film bags where weapons could be hidden invisible to the X-ray machines. The result is the same both six months after Sept. 11 and a year after Sept. 11: In 70 percent of the cases the security personnel fails to open the lead-lined bags.
