So, Olajide Oluwaseun Noibi, a man from UndieBomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s native land, Nigeria, gets on more than one flight within the U.S. with an expired boarding pass in someone else’s name and a University of Michigan ID, which was stolen. allahu Go Blue Kaboom! Oh, and he also used a phony police report saying his real ID had been stolen. And when the FBI arrests him, he has multiple other boarding passes in other people’s names. Why wasn’t he stopped before–or at least, after–the first time? And, uh, sorry, this guy was clearly up to no good. Testing the system, doing a dry run, whatever. He didn’t have a passport, but had multiple stolen, expired boarding passes, ID, and a fake police report “by accident” or because he has “mental problems.” He was doing something designed to ultimately kill Americans on planes. That’s clear to anyone but a moron. What isn’t clear is who this guy is and how he got to America? Who issued the visa, if he had one? What was in his luggage, if he had any? Hey, guess the religion . . .
Is Olajide Noibi Another UndieBomber, Like Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab?
Olajide Oluwaseun Noibi, a Nigerian-born man who was found with the stolen ID and up to 10 old boarding passes containing various names, was arrested Wednesday after attempting to board a flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta; five days after passing through layers of airport security at New York’s JFK airport to board a plane with a day-old boarding pass.
Noibi was charged with being a stowaway aboard an aircraft, according to FBI Special Agent Kevin R. Hogg. He is being held at a Los Angeles Metropolitan Detention Center and is expected to be in court Friday.
Noibi managed to get through every layer of security with a fake ID and numerous boarding passes, at least one of which came from another passenger’s pocket. . . .
The arrest came after Noibi managed to board a plane Saturday under similar circumstances at JFK and travel to Los Angeles. Noibi boarded Virgin America flight 415 at JFK bound for L.A., according to an FBI affidavit.
He was found on the plane after it had taken off and was in flight, in a seat in the aircraft’s “main cabin select” area. When asked for his boarding pass, Noibi produced a boarding pass and ticket for a Friday flight that was not in his name.
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.
On flight 415 Saturday — the day after M.D.’s flight had already taken off — a similarly folded home-printed boarding pass with M.D.’s name on it was found on Noibi.
It is unclear how Noibi managed to get through security at both airports, and whether he left the L.A. airport once flight 415 landed last week and when he attempted to board Delta Airlines flight 46 to Atlanta Wednesday, although he claims to have cleared security.
“Noibi … said that he spent the night of June 28, 2011 at LAX Gate 51B, which I know is in the secure portion of the airport,” agent Hogg said in the affidavit. “Noibi claimed he was able to go through passenger screening by obtaining a seat pass and displaying his University of Michigan identification and a police report that his passport had been stolen.” . . .
When they searched his bags, they found more than 10 boarding passes in various individual’s names. . . .
Generally speaking, though, the TSA said in its statement, “Every passenger that passes through security checkpoints is subject to many layers of security including thorough physical screening at the checkpoint. . . . It is important to note that this passenger was subject to the same physical screening at the checkpoint as other passengers.”
And as the execrable Dr. Phil would ask, “An’ howzz that workin’ for ya?” Yup, while they are molesting 6-year-old non-Muslim kids and making a 95-year-old granny remove her diapers, this guy still managed to game the system. What does that tell you? It’s pretty obvious: treating everyone the same and going through endless, expensive, time-consuming security theater ain’t worth ass.
It is unclear why Noibi was arrested Wednesday and not when he was discovered last week as a stowaway on Flight 415.
Uh, I think it’s pretty clear why. The system is an epic failure. It hasn’t and won’t catch Islamic terrorists. You need to use your brain, logic, and just plain ole’ common sense for that. And we refuse to do any of that. Time to frisk the granny. . . .
You really think we’re safer than before 9/11? Ten years after 9/11, we are less safe and more vulnerable than ever. Yup, that whole Department of Homeland Security creation was a huge success! Thanks, George W. Bush and Joe Lieberman (who created DHS)!
It would be hilarious, if it weren’t so pathetic.
