A late-night security guard waves in employees without checking bags, large cleaning carts, or giant pallets of newspapers. A stranger walks up to a regional commercial jet on an airport tarmac, no questions asked. A woman with an IED strapped to her leg gets by TSA screeners. Investigative reporters at KNXV in Phoenix, KHOU in Houston, and KUSA in Denver go undercover, go on stakeouts, and go the extra mile. Cultivating inside sources and unearthing government documents, local news reporters reveal shocking lapses in the nation's airport security.
