File This Under WTF!?! Or "Right This Way Mr. Atta, We'll Escort You To Your Plane"

Apparently someone in Phoenix needs a ton a bricks to fall on them...
Serious Security Questions at Sky Harbor Airport

It's what you have to do when you fly - use X-ray machines, metal detectors, and deal with liquid restrictions in your carry-on luggage. You know the drill.

Security checkpoints are just part of travel these days. They're supposed to keep us safe, so we use them - but not all of us and not all the time. [ ... ]


It's what we discovered in the middle of the night - TSA agents going away, and security guards taking over. It's 4.5 hours - every night - when an employee badge becomes an all-access pass.

Night after night, our hidden cameras captured what security experts tell us is a disaster waiting to happen.

The X-ray machines were off, the metal detectors were closed, and bags with unknown contents were carried to the secure side of the airport where the planes are.

We watched as a security guard let people with purses, coolers and suitcases
walk right through - bags unchecked.
Sweet Jesus! Heads need to roll, jobs need to be lost, public flogging must occur. But I bet nothing will be done until something happens and then the airport officials will feign shock and amazement at how something so horrible could have taken place on their watch.
