Federal authorities are trying to determine how a Nigerian man was able to board a commercial airliner with an expired boarding pass in someone else's name -- and avoid being arrested until five days after the flight. Olajide Oluwaseun Noibi was allowed to leave Los Angeles International Airport even after it was discovered that he had flown using that boarding pass and invalid identification. "Obviously the system did not work the way it was supposed to," said Brian Jenkins, a transportation security expert at the Mineta Transportation Institute and Rand Corp. "Procedure was not followed." The Transportation Security Administration is reviewing the matter.
