The Islamic State group may have stolen “tens of thousands” of blank passports that it could use to smuggle its fighters into Europe as refugees, a German newspaper reported Sunday.
Obviously, they will use them to get in to the EU and possibly the US to launch attacks. They also sell them on the black market.
The two unidentified Stade de France attackers in Paris have been tracked back to two fake Syrian passports used to enter Europe.
WaPo warned in November that there is a booming black market for fake Syrian passports.
The head of EU border agency Frontex, Fabrice Leggeri, told the magazine Welt that passports issued in war-ravaged countries such as Syria where conditions are chaotic mean that no one can guarantee “that documents that look real were actually issued by an official authority”.
Asked about the report, the German interior ministry offered a similar assessment.
“In light of the large number of entering migrants, it cannot be ruled out that among them are for example, criminals, war criminals, members of militant groups or terror organisations. or individuals with extremist views,” a spokesman told AFP.
“At the same time, it cannot be ruled out that these people are carrying fake documents.”
Germany has an open door policy for refugees.
Germany is Europe’s top destination for refugees, most of whom travel through Turkey and the Balkans, and expects more than one million arrivals this year.
Travel to the US from Germany has been very easy and their lack of safeguards presents serious safety risks for the US.
The spending bill which no one read allows Barack Obama to move ahead with importing untold numbers of refugees from God knows where.
