Description

This series of stories examines the security deficiencies at Newark Liberty International Airport, one of the three airports breached by terrorists on Sept. 11, 2001. More than two years after Sept. 11, thousands of bags each day are not being scanned for explosives and security checkpoints remain seriously understaffed, the newspaper found. Subsequent stories revealed equipment problems, security lapses and significant employee absences by security personnel.
