While the TSA is busy being as thorough as they possibly can, it seems other aspects of the airport personnel are not up to par. Via The Gothamist:

While the Transportation Security Administration may or may not be making old ladies take off their Depends during screening, there’s this: A Nigerian man managed to board a Los Angeles-bound flight at JFK Airport without a valid boarding pass or valid identification. Olajide Olwaseun Noibi used a fake ID and an expired boarding pass to get onto Virgin America Flight 415.

WCBS 2 reports, “The FBI says Noibi sat in the main cabin and when a flight attendant asked him to show his boarding pass, he produced the expired pass. Noibi was still allowed to get off the plane when it landed in Los Angeles.” Great! And how did Noibi get the pass?ABC News explains:

“On that pass was the name of a man with the initials M.D. After tracking down and interviewing him, the FBI learned that M.D. had lost his home-printed boarding pass from his back pocket, which had been folded into fourths, once he arrived at JFK via subway Friday. Once he discovered it missing, he obtained a new boarding pass from a ticket kiosk and boarded flight 413.”

    boarding passes not in their own names? Ch… wait, where’d he go?

    Wish I’d thought of it. I’m sick of seeing how incompetent these people are.

    Patience people…the TSA has a lot to do…its hard to juggle all those details at the same time. Can just a few people in key points manage molesting, irradiating and violating every single human in a mile radius? No…the job is just to big…obviously a few people will slip through the cracks…probably with bombs falling out of their backpack, an “Allahu Akbar! This is my last flight!” T-shirt and enough plastique charge to take out a small moon…because the important task isn’t stopping terror…its terrorizing the peasants…and they’ve gotten that job right since day 1.
