TSA clears felon, ‘notorious’ domestic terrorist for fast-pass screening program: ‘Was it Bill Ayers?’

A convicted felon and former member of a domestic terrorist group was approved by the TSA last year for its PreCheck trusted passenger program — airports’ version of Disney’s “FastPass.”

According to the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general, the unidentified passenger was cleared for expedited airport security in June 2014, The Hill reported.

“In this circumstance, the [Transportation Security Officer] recognized the sufficiently notorious convicted felon based on media coverage, and verified the traveler’s identity documents,” the inspector general’s report said. “Upon scanning the traveler’s boarding pass, the TSA received a TSA PreCheck eligibility notification.”

When brought to the attention of supervision, the officer was directed “to take no further action and allow the traveler through the TSA PreCheck lane.”

Since the traveler was never named, when the news hit social media there was only one question for one user: “Was it Bill Ayers?”
