Description

This WISH investigation reveals the threat presented by unscreened cargo aboard passenger planes, three years after Congress passed a law requiring the screening of such cargo. The report noted that none of the Transportation Security Administration's $85 million air cargo security budget is being used to screen cargo on passenger planes and that the government puts commerce ahead of safety. The TV station mailed its own bomb-related package across the nation to prove the security threat.
