PIERRE THOMAS (Voiceover) And here's a result of what could have happened, potentially deadly explosions.
SENATOR JOSEPH LIEBERMAN This federal - protective service to me has got trouble from top to bottom.
PIERRE THOMAS (Voiceover) Investigators found this guard sleeping at his post, learned that a guard accidentally fired his weapon while practicing pulling it out in the bathroom. Discovered that one guard was so distracted, he actually ran a baby in a carrier through an X-ray machine.
HARRY "SKIP" BRANDON (FORMER FBI COUNTERTERRORISM CHIEF) The central issue that I see in this, in this whole really major problem is lack of training.
PIERRE THOMAS (Voiceover) Homeland Security officials say they take the results of the investigation very seriously, and have taken short-term and long-term steps to address them. With 9,000 federal buildings to protect, they have to. For "Good Morning America," Pierre Thomas, Washington.
