Passport Terrorism?

Terrorists gained the upper hand against Great Britain when 900 passports that were being transported from a printing plant to their embassy in Moscow were stolen.  There are no details on how the theft occurred but the stolen passports are selling for about $700 in Pakistan. 

According to the Sun, a Whitehall insider said: “Pakistan is one of the worst places these visas could have turned up. They could be used by illegal immigrants and fundamentalists.”

As of yesterday, three people were being held a Heathrow airport for using the stolen passports.  Authorities don’t know how many if any have already been used before the theft was discovered.

Can you say border security?
