Fake IDs for terrorists
(The Hawk Eye) Edward Ochoa, an undercover detective for the Arizona Fraudulent Identification Task Force, called a forger one day last year and explained that he was in a real hurry.
“I said, ‘I have these Middle East guys who are here illegally. And I want to put them on a plane for New York today,'” Ochoa recalled.
Some of the names were from the FBI’s terrorist watch list. One was Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of an extremist group who had just been killed in Iraq, and whose name and face had been plastered all over the news.
The only question the forger asked was whether al-Zarqawi wanted Iraq listed as his place of birth, as Ochoa requested.
The forger produced the fake documents and was promptly arrested.
It didn’t matter to the forger that the cards could have gone to possible terrorists, suggested Fred Hayman, a member of the Arizona task force.
“It’s all about money,” he said.
