The FBI has nabbed a former TSA security screener who made threats that led to the evacuation of two terminals at LAX Tuesday.

The terminals were evacuated following two phone calls from a man authorities believe to be 29-year old Nna Alpha Onuoha, the AP reports. No bombs were found.

Investigators found a note in Onuoha’s apartment that contained unspecified threats and referenced the anniversary of the September 11 attacks. After resigning from TSA, authorities say, Onuoha wrote to another employee expressing anti-American sentiments and referencing the reason for his suspension from the screening job he had held since 2006.

Why do they always confuse anti-goverment with anti-american?

Now in addition to hiring criminals and pedophiles, TSA is hiring terrorists to molest airline passengers.

There were now twelve TSA screeners arrested for crimes in the last six weeks. Seven were arrested last week for stolen parking passes in Dallas. In July and August arrests included TSA Manager Shane Hinkle charged with sexual abuse of co-worker, TSA screener, Larry Kobielnik, for sexual assault and attempted rape in Florida, Massachusetts screener Miguel Quinones for having child pornography and screener Tracy Leanne Owens for stealing cash from a bag in Honolulu.

There have now been 125 TSA workers arrested in the last 30 months including 20 arrested for sex crimes including 16 involving children, over 32 for theft, 12 for smuggling contraband through security and one for murder.  This is typical of the TSA workforce which continues to include a known pedophile, Thomas Harkin, working at Philadelphia airport more a year after he was exposed.

This agency is a national disgrace and endangers more people than it protects. It is long past time for TSA to be replaced with a sensible system staffed by local police, not criminals and misfits subjecting Americans to illegal searches.

For his punishment, he should have to smell the shoes of every passenger for six-months.

General consensus says, that's what you get when you hire ONLY blacks - a poor and terrible job.

@mrbcool @BillyWilliams1 Maybe but at least he would not be a muslim ,that should not have hired in the first place. They could not find an american white,black,asian,or Hispanic, they had to hire a fanatic muslim.
