French intelligence has confirmed that ISIS has not only gotten hold of fake passports, they have turned it into an entire industry. IS is headed for the United States and is likely already here, in addition to the ones we already know are here.
French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve told reporters that through ISIS’s operations, ISIS has now set up a “real fake document industry” from passports seized in Iraq, Syria and Libya,
ISIS has acquired thousands of fake passports and at least one passport-making machine.
Officials from Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) said in a 17-page report that the terror group has likely been able to print legitimate-looking Syrian passports since at least last summer – and raised the possibility that people using the forged documents have snuck into America.
“Since more than 17 months [have] passed since Raqqa and Deir ez-Zour fell to ISIS, it is possible that individuals from Syria with passports ‘issued’ in these ISIS-controlled cities or who had passport blanks, may have traveled to the U.S.,” a HSI report says.
The report has the second-highest rating for source assessments.
Former Department of Homeland Security intelligence official and ABC News consultant John Cohen said in December, “If ISIS has been able to acquire legitimate passports or machines that create legitimate passports, this would represent a major security risk in the United States.”
“The source further stated that fake Syrian passports are so prevalent in Syria that Syrians do not even view possessing them as illegal,” the report says. “The source stated fake Syrian passports can be obtained in Syria for $200 to $400 and that backdated passport stamps to be placed in the passport cost the same.”
At least two of the terrorists in the Paris attacks in November traveled on the migrant route through Greece using Syrian passports and posing as refugees and migrants with fake passports. ISIS members have beens showing up in Europe’s migrant camps.
President Obama, who now has the power and funds to take in hundreds of thousands of refugees and has already begun to do so using a secret vetting process and allowing the UN to make the initial decisions, will go down in history as the president who deliberately exposed the United States citizens to terrorists seeking to terrify, kill and destroy our way of life.
Once here, they will never be gone. They’ll get good lawyers.
IS attacks are being planned in the EU using guns and bombs, despite their tough gun laws, and they are looking at soft targets which one might assume they would also do here.
