Ticket to Freedom: Reports Indicate ISIS Creating Fake Passports with Ease

Robert J. O'Neill on America's Newsroom

“This Is One Way for Terrorists to Creep in with the Migrants,” Warns O’Neill.

As if ISIS in the Middle East isn’t enough of a threat. Now, it’s looking more than likely that members of the terrorist organization are free to travel at will — with fake passports at their disposal. Reports indicate that ISIS may have gotten their hands on a passport printing machine in Syria. The Department of Homeland Security is expressing concern. So is FBI Director James Comey.

If the threat is for real, the potential repercussions are almost too scary to imagine.

Former Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill sat down with America’s Newsroom anchor Bill Hemmer to decipher fact from fiction.

Hemmer: “You’ve been watching this for some time. What do you think of this possibility?”

O’Neill: “There’s no doubt about it. They have a machine that makes passports, probably more. There were passports on two of the suicide bombers in Paris, Syrian passports. These are all over the place. Ever since ISIS took Raqqa they’ve had this capability and this is just one way for ISIS to creep in with the migrants. They’ve been saying they’re going to do it, and they’re doing it.”

Hemmer: “One of the killers in Paris is still on the run and the reason he’s on the run is because he’s got a passport and he’s European and can move across the continent.”

O’Neill: “One he has a passport. Two the borders are open. He’ll be up and down and all over the place.”

Hemmer: “You’ve followed this debate about the visa applications. The K1 visa that apparently millions have been using for years. These are some of the questions to gain entrance into the U.S.:

  • Do You Seek to Engage in Terrorist Activities While in the U.S.?
  • Have You Ever/Do You Intend to Provide Money/Support to Any Terrorist Groups?
  • Do You Have Any Skills or Training in Explosives, Nuclear, or Chemical Experience?
  • Have You Ever Been a Member of, or Been Involved with a Paramilitary Unit?

  • Hemmer: “Where is the logic here?”

    O’Neill: “The jokes are writing themselves. Who came up with these? I would love to know the last time a person answered yes. I’ve been involved with battlefield interrogations of a lot of terrorists, hundreds of terrorists over many different theaters. Here’s a newsflash: they lie.”

    Hemmer: “I thought this was a joke.”

    O’Neill: “It almost is a joke. It’s so ridiculous it’s almost comedy. But people are dying over this.”
