Report: WND Founder And Birther Leader Stopped At Airport With Loaded Gun


Joseph Farah, the co-founder of the conservative website now known as WND and one of the guiding lights of the birther movement, was caught by TSA agents at Dulles International Airport on Sunday with a loaded .38-caliber revolver in his carry-on bag, according to The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority told the SPLC that Farah was released pending a summons, and is facing a class 1 misdemeanor charge for carrying a gun in an airport terminal.

According to the SPLC, The Washington Post first reported the incident on Monday but misreported the age of the individual involved. The SPLC said an airport spokesperson had confirmed that the person cited for the weapon charge was Joseph Francis Farah, 59.
