Authorities Investigate Security Breach At JFK After Man Flies To L.A. Without Ticket Or ID

As Steve reported this week, the TSA patted down a 95-year old woman and removed her adult diaper in the name of “security”.  Yet somehow these brilliant folks let a Nigerian national with an expired boarding pass slip through.

CBS New York reports that The FBI is investigating a major security breach at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Someone boarded a plane with a college ID and a bogus boarding pass found on a subway train. What authorities say Nigerian national Olajide Noibi pulled off was thought by many travelers to be impossible.

Law enforcement officials say big mistakes were made on Friday. Noibi passed TSA screening at JFK and boarded Virgin American Flight 415 bound for Los Angeles, with a University of Michigan ID and with an expired boarding pass that belonged to someone else.

The security breach wasn’t noticed until the Virgin American flight was off the ground. Flight attendants realized Noibi was sitting in a seat that should have been vacant and after checking the name on his boarding pass they found it didn’t match his ID. Investigators said the boarding pass belonged to a man who said it went missing from his pocket on his way to the airport on June 23.

The FBI said Noibi stayed in L.A. for four days and then tried to pull the same stunt on a Delta flight to Atlanta, again, with no valid ID or boarding pass. But security officers caught him with 10 expired boarding passes in his possession and he was taken into custody. He was charged with being a stowaway, but not under any terror or security laws.

I’m sure TSA will improve their security standards when the AFL-CIO takes over. Yes, TSA is a joke.

It’s time for Janet “Reno II” Himmler to go.

And it’s long past time the repubs got off their butts and insisted on it.

Should Obama refuse to remove this incompetent wretch, the House repubs should grow some stones and gut the funding for the TSA, as well as the DHS.

Time to start playing hardball with this out-of-control government – and especially the Muslim commie that is at the head of it.

Don’t worry, I’m not holding my breath.

Which kind of lends credence to the idea that they are torturing Americans and allowing everyone else a pass

It gets worse. Apparently the scanners aren’t good for TSA, any more than the groping is good for little girls or elderly cancer patients. There has been a lot of citing of records revealing cancer cluster appearances in TSA staff. While these aren’t the usual sources from which I obtain my information, I can’t seem to remember the more legit media source where I read the same article, before I cleared the history, so here goes: https://www.tgdaily.com/hardware-features/56899-tsa-ignored-warnings-on-cancer-cluster and, https://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=439×1373193 *note below Maybe they’d get better results and less goofs if they actually were looking for legitimate targets. Remember, the alleged… Read more »

If the TSA and the FBI knew that the wrong person was on the plane to L.A., why did they let him roam freely in L.A. for 4 days, and then waite until He was trying to board a flight to Alanta, with no valid ID, before they arested him?
