Marvel at TSA's Screening Process as Employee Quits, Threatens Terrorist Attack


"I was just testing everybody"

A guy who puts up a website threatening some ominous incident that will be even worse than Sept. 11 is exactly who you want going through your luggage, right? I'd argue that he was trying to guarantee job security, but he apparently quit, and then called in unspecified threats that shut down parts of Los Angeles International Airport. The Associated Press reports:

A Los Angeles International Airport security screener arrested on suspicion of making threats appears on a website that contains rambling letters criticizing America and a promise of something more devastating than the 9/11 attacks.

Nna Alpha Onuoha, 29, was arrested late Tuesday, hours after he quit his Transportation Security Administration job. He was being interviewed by federal investigators and charges could be filed Wednesday.

The website shows Onuoha posing with crosses and includes several letters filled with religious references. An Aug. 25 posting attributed to him said a message would be released on Sept. 11 and America "will be reduced to nothing."

"Do not expect another 9/11," it said. "What will unfold on this day and on the days ahead will be greater than 9/11."

After he called in threats, parts of LAX were closed and searched, but nothing was found. Before he resigned he was suspended from work for a week in July for allegedly making inappropriate comments to a 15-year-old, according to unidentified sources. Hmm. Could that be this case here?
