A pilot who posted YouTube videos criticizing security at San Francisco International Airport says he's shocked at the national uproar they've created.

Chris Liu told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Tuesday that he wasn't aware so many people watch YouTube. He and his attorney, Don Werno, defended the footage as exposing a security lapse at the
airport.

The 50-year-old Colfax resident recently posted videos showing how ground crew can enter secure areas by swiping security cards without undergoing further screening.

The videos have since been removed.

Liu has been suspended from an anti-terrorism program that let him carry a gun on planes and is under investigation by the Transportation Security Administration.

Werno says his client decided to go public after reporters figured out his identity.
