The former FAA head of security and other experts reflect on the failings that made the September 11th attacks possible.
For years, passengers using US airports knew that security in these facilities was lax. But it took the terrorist attacks of September 11th to galvanize attention on this issue--too late to save the thousands of people who were killed.
INVESTIGATIVE REPORTSTM takes a long, hard look at the security measures that were in place before September 11th and the changes that have been proposed and enacted since. Experts like Billie Vincent, the former FAA head of security, and Isaac Yeffet, the former chief of security for El Al Airlines, detail the many ways that terrorists could exploit the shortcomings and analyze the impact that new legislation and technology is likely to have. And we'll visit airports throughout the nation to see how the changes are being implemented, and how they affect travelers.
AIRLINE SECURITY is a balanced look at the long-overdue improvements that will hopefully make the American air transportation system safer in the future.
