Once you have access to your checked bags, again no matter what airport you are at, you will need to clear security again before you can get into the sterile area.

Unless you were on a flight that was precleared in the the country you started in I don't see how it's possible to avoid immigration, customs, and a security check in Philadelphia. I don't believe that is possible in Zurich, at least not according to the list of preclearance locations on the customs website.
Nah I was sayig in PHL I didn't need to go through any kind of passport control departing overseas as I was told this would happen. Obviously in this thread we're talking about going the the other way.
