Authorities Investigate Security Breach At JFK
NEW YORK (CBS) — How could it happen?
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 her found on a subway train, reports CBS 2’s Hazel Sanchez.
What authorities say Nigerian national Olajide Noibi pulled off was thought by many travelers to be impossible.
“For what we’ve been going through since 9/11, it’s intolerable,” Astoria resident Nicholas Christopher said.
“It’s very scary, especially when there’s thousands of people who travel every day,” added Long Island resident Elana Kaminsky.
TSA Joke of the Week:
Q: Which does the TSA consider to be the greatest threat to air security — Al Qaeda or Hamas?
Meanwhile, as the TSA Was Busy Keeping the Skies Safe from Little Girls and the Elderly…
3 year old girls? Check! 😛
95-year-old wheelchair-bound terminally-ill women in adult diapers? Check! 😛
Nigerian men with no ID carrying multiple expired boarding passes not in their own names?
Check! Uh, wait, where’d he go? Anyone seen the Nigerian guy? 😕
I don’t have a picture of the Nigerian guy, apparently, the TSA didn’t either.
Damned terrorist kids and old folks…but if you think terrorist kids and old folks are a danger in the skies:
(YBH) – Matt Drudge has been running the following photo all day with the caption “The Terrorists Have Won” on the Drudge Report. The picture, which has become an internet sensation, is purported to be from a security checkpoint at Detroit Metro Airport.
I’m not going to sit here and try to tell you that Catholic Nuns aren’t evil, any kid that ever attended a Catholic school knows at least one Nun that was evil incarnate and swung a mean 12 inch ruler, but unless they are capable of taking over an airliner with a ruler, I’m thinking the skies are safe there too.
The TSA falls under the Department of Homeland Security and it’s Secretary, Janet Napolitano. Quite frankly, that explains a lot.
The DHS, under the guidance of Napolitano, can’t, or won’t secure the U.S. borders but they can search little kids, old, infirm persons and Catholic Nuns. That particular search being conducted by a RAG HEAD member of TSA.
The following scenario did NOT occur and I am NOT making specific accusations, but just consider this; we all know that radical Islamic groups have infiltrated America, suppose the Muslim female searching the Nun was a part of one of those *Death to America* groups and her search of the Nun was designed to deliberately keep her, the agent, occupied while some of her particular *cell* went unscreened and boarded a plane? It could happen!
Consider this: TSA Screener Employment Eligibility Requirements. The TSA Screener Employment Eligibility Requirements don’t seem to be too much more stringent than those of Wal-Mart for a *Greeter*.
The thing is, MOST Wal-Mart greeters don’t let that position go to their heads and then instigate body searches on Wal-Mart shoppers.
