How did a convicted murderer with ties to a terrorist group get aboard an airplane through a reduced security screening?
TSA officers have been seen merging all lines into one, herding entire lines of people who have not been pre-screened through limited security, they only go through the metal detector.
Passengers without background checks have been whisked through the same lines reserved for pre-screened travelers, members of the TSA’s pre-check programs.
Some flyers Wednesday morning were floating on air at American Airlines’ Terminal 8 screening. They left on their shoes, belts, and jackets, they didn’t have to open their bags, and they breezed through security.
