New questions have arisen concerning airport security after a Nigerian American flew cross-country from New York to Los Angeles, using fake IDs and an expired boarding pass.
Transportation Security Administration agents only caught Olajide Noibe several days later when he tried to board another flight using another expired pass.
A check of his luggage turned up 10 more expired boarding passes believed to have been stolen.
Noibe told authorities he planned to fly to Nigeria next month and return on Sept. 9 -- just two days before the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.
So far, Noibe has only been charged with being a stowaway aboard an aircraft.
The TSA declined to "comment on the specifics of the case given the ongoing FBI investigation."
"Every passenger that passes through security checkpoints is subject to many layers of security including thorough physical screening at the checkpoint," TSA officials said. "TSA's review of this matter indicates that the passenger went through screening.
"It is important to note that this passenger was subject to the same physical screening at the checkpoint as other passengers," they added.
