Transcript for ISIS May Literally Print 'Genuine' Syrian Passports
We're going to turn to that terrifying new alert detailing how Isis followers can slip undetected into the U.S. The group now has the ability to make fake passports that look just like the real thing and Brian Ross here with this exclusive report. Good morning, Brian. Reporter: Good morning, George. The U.S. And other countries are on high alert for Isis attacks, American authorities are warning the terror group is now producing its own authentic-looking passports almost impossible to detect. Authorities say as Isis swept through major Syrian cities last year, it was able to seize at least two government passport printing machines similar or smaller than this one used by the british government. If Isis has been able to acquire legitimate passports or machines that could create legitimate passports, this would represent a major security risk to the United States. Reporter: A homeland security investigation bulletin sent to law enforcement in the last week and obtained by ABC news showed examples of suspect passports and said Isis may have boxes full of blank passports. The bulletin warned that individuals from Syria with passports issued in these Isis controlled cities or who had passport blanks may have traveled to the U.S. The director of the FBI first revealed it publicly in testimony. They are concerned they have the ability, the capability to manufacture fraudulent passports. Which is a concern in any setting. Reporter: Several of the fraudulent passports have already been discovered in Europe, most notably in the Paris attacks when authorities said one of the suicide bombers used this forged Syrian passport to come into Europe as a refugee. And now this morning in Switzerland authorities are searching for as many as six possible Isis terrorists, the U.S. Provided intelligence to the Swiss about a possible attack and Americans traveling to Switzerland have been warned the threat level especially in Geneva has been raised. Quite specific. Exactly right. Thanks very much.
