How secure is airport security?

Denver International Airport is a huge, multi-level complex that employs hundreds and sees thousands of passengers pass through on a daily basis. Since 9/11, travelers have depended on security checkpoints and alert personnel to avoid another terrorist tragedy.

That trust has been strained once again. Denver's CBS TV-4 went undercover after receiving a tip from an anonymous airport employee:
... using a hidden camera, CBS4 found that hundreds of people who work at Denver International Airport are passing through a checkpoint into the airport's secure area every day without being examined, and the TSA's rules allow it.
This report on World Net Daily caught my attention since my family had traveled through Denver last summer. Read the entire story here.
