We can only imagine it’s Obama’s good buddy Bill Ayers.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) approved a convicted felon who is a former member of a domestic terrorist organization for expedited airport security last year, according to a report released this week by the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general.
The report alleges that the TSA cleared the June 2014 passenger, whose name was not revealed, despite the fact that the traveler had not submitted paperwork for its PreCheck trusted passenger program. The traveler was recognized by security agents at the airport.
“In this circumstance, the [Transportation Security Officer] recognized the sufficiently notorious convicted felon based on media coverage, and verified the traveler’s identity documents. Upon scanning the traveler’s boarding pass, the TSA received a TSA PreCheck eligibility notification,” the report said.
Little old ladies and children are still subject to body cavity searches.
The Homeland Security inspector general’s report said the passenger, who it described as “a former member of a domestic terrorist group,” was cleared through the TSA’s Secure Flight program, which the agency says is supposed to match passengers’ boarding documents with federal No Fly Lists.
