    A private security guard at Dulles International Airport had his access withdrawn this week after his employer was made aware of a lawsuit alleging he had committed “war crimes” in Somalia.

    The civil suit alleges that Yusuf Abdi Ali, 63, -- a former commander in the Somali National Army who later moved to Alexandria, Virginia -- tortured a Somali national in 1987.

    The man bringing the suit claims that, at Ali’s direction, he was beaten, kicked, stripped naked and shot because Ali believed he was a supporter of an opposition group that had recently stolen a water tanker. Ali himself repeatedly shot the man and left him for dead, the suit claims, asking his guards to dispose of the body.

    Officials with Master Security, a contractor that provides security guards to the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA), told ABC News they were not aware of the pending civil litigation against their employee until Tuesday, but have now placed Ali on paid administrative leave while they investigate.

    The civil suit was first reported by CNN.

    According to the Fallston Group, an executive advisory firm hired by Master Security, Ali had worked with the security company "for a couple of years," and had gone through a battery of background checks.

    All Master Security employees are subject to "the full, federally mandated vetting process in order to be approved for an airport badge," MWAA said, noting the vetting includes a criminal history record check by the FBI and a security assessment by the Transportation Security Administration. Master Security employees working at Dulles must also be licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia.

    "We have verified that all of these processes were followed and approved in this instance," MWAA said in a statement.

    A judge has yet to rule on the case as the courts try to determine whether the U.S. legal system has jurisdiction over the lawsuit, according to the Center for Justice and Accountability. The circuit court dismissed the lawsuit's war crimes claim on the basis that it lacked jurisdiction, it allowed claims of torture and attempted murder to go forward. The case is now awaiting a review by the Supreme Court.

    After the alleged war crimes, Ali moved to Canada, but was deported two years later, the suit claims. He then moved to the U.S., where deportation proceedings were begun. He voluntarily left America shortly thereafter in 1994, and returned two years later, according to the suit.

    Ali's attorney, Joseph Drennan, denied all allegations and told ABC News that his client, who is still a citizen of Somalia, returned to the U.S. legally.

    The FBI, TSA and Virginia Commonwealth's Department of Criminal Justice Service were not immediately available for comment.

    Ok one slipped through the cracks that we know of.
    The main thing to remember here is that Dulles is an employer who embraces diversity and isn't that the most important thing ?

    This is true in a lot of airports. Terrifying

    FBI Agent: Terror Suspect Once Worked At MSP Airport

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Twin Cities terror suspect who once worked at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport told another suspect he had the ability to build rockets that could take down planes at 2,000 feet.
    That testimony came from an FBI agent during a hearing on Tuesday for Abdirizak Warsame. It’s to determine whether he should remain in jail pending the outcome of his case.
