Accuracy in Media

Oh, he passed background checks?

Federal agencies knew that a man hired as a security guard at Dulles International Airport outside of Washington, D.C. was an accused Somali war criminal, CNN reported Friday.

Yusuf Abdi Ali, who served as a military commander during the Somali Civil War, has been accused of torturing civilians, burning villages, and conducting mass executions. CNN reported Thursday that Ali passed both FBI and TSA background checks.
