(CNN)   Having multiple levels of security checkpoints doesn't work so well when everyone after the first checkpoint just assumes you belong since you were let in by the first one. Isn't that right, Atlanta airport?   (cnn.com ) divider line

is in general a true statement all by itself.

Well it is clear how this could happen - no terrorist would ever wear a sundress in early March - such a faux pas.

It's amazing to me how just wearing a badge or two on a lanyard around your neck makes other people "security blind" to you.   Completely by accident I once got into a restricted area but worked there all day without being challenged.  I had two badges but neither one was the correct badge for that area.  Nobody cared.

They should show this stories to jailed terrorists so they can feel more stupid for being caught.

Who cares? I mean, isn't all that security just "theatre" anyway?
I would expect most Farkers to be applauding this.

I was surprised it wasn't Boston. The past few times I've flown out of there, once I was checked at the initial security point, at each point afterwards I just had to have my boarding pass visible. The airline even made an announcement over the PA saying that it was OK to put away our IDs after that first security checkpoint.

I used to work in construction.  It was amazing the places I could go wearing a hard hat and carrying a clipboard.

domino's hat and a pizza bag has the same ability but with wider places you can go.  I imagine the construction outfit would only work near places where construction is occurring or there would be need for a supervisor to check things, but pizza guys get to go everywhere trying to find "Mike" in the back office.

That's usually my experience too... but unlike you and I, this lady was walking around on the tarmac.

I recall walking on the ramp (working at the airport) and encountering a woman rushing by me with no badge. I turn around and grab her and ask for her badge and she whips out her FAA identification They often tested us that way. She said good job and don't tell anybody about it.

I went inside and told Ops who radioed everybody.
