How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Somali Man Accused of Leading Mass Executions Works As Airport Security in U.S.

Yusuf Abdi Ali has been accused of leading mass executions and torture during the country’s civil war in the 1980s.

Despite the enormity of the allegations, Ali managed to pass FBI and TSA checks to work as a security guard at the Dulles International Airport, Fox News reports. 

It appears the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority also was aware of some of the allegations in a lawsuit filed by a human rights group in 2006. He was accused of committing crimes against humanity.

“The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority maintains a contract with Master Security to provide unarmed security services,” said Rob Yingling, a spokesperson. “Master Security’s employees are subject to the full, federally mandated vetting process in order to be approved for an airport badge, including a criminal history records check by the FBI and a security threat assessment by the TSA.”

Ali has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation.

“He oversaw some of the most incredible violence that you can imagine,” Kathy Roberts, an attorney for the Center for Justice and Accountability (CJA), which is leading the civil lawsuit, told CNN. “He tortured people personally; he oversaw torture.”
