Airport screeners bypassing security

A new policy lets airport screeners at Denver International Airport bypass security screening checkpoints that passengers have to go through

"Lunch or a bomb, you can walk right through with it," said Mike Boyd, an aviation consultant in Evergreen. "This is a major security issue." 

The new, blue uniforms have metal badges that set off alarms when screeners go through the checkpoints. Sources say the TSA is worried that the screeners will remove the badges while going through security and that they'll get lost or stolen.

The TSA says that is not the reason for the policy change.
