Description

This investigation exposed major security lapses at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, the fifth busiest airport in the country. Reporters posed as passengers and used hidden cameras to film unchecked bags being allowed into the secure site of the airport. The story had immediate consequences; the TSA took over operations at the airport and corrected the security problems.
