ISIS Has Whole Fake Passport 'Industry,' Official Says

ISIS Has Whole Fake Passport 'Industry,' Official SaysThe terror group ISIS has created a whole “industry” out of the production of fake passports, a high-level French official said today. French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve told reporters that through ISIS’s operations in Syria, Iraq and Libya, the group has acquired blank passports and has now set up a “real fake document industry.” Cazeneuve made the statement following a meeting with top European officials where he proposed setting up a new task force to help nab people attempting to come into the European Union with fake papers. Last month ABC News reported that U.S. intelligence suspected ISIS had acquired thousands of blank Syrian passports and at least one passport printing machine after taking over government offices in Syria.
