Security firm tipped off prior to airport inspections

Lance Williams of the San Francisco Chronicle used federal and court records to investigate a claim by a former employee of the firm, that the company was tipped off prior to security decoy tests. The tips allegedly helped the firm secure a 90 percent success rate with the tests. "That success rate helped the Chicago firm keep a federal contract that paid out $72 million last year under terms of an experimental airport security program enacted by Congress after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, federal records show."
