A New Way for Terrorists to Hide

Venezuela is starting to look like broken state. And in the death throes they are doing things – probably that they believe will strike at the West. (Or at least some of them want to strike at us.) Venezuela illegally issued 10,000 passports to Syrians, Iranians, report says | Fox News

10,000 people are a lot of people, and probably a lot of them are good people just running for the exits in a bad situation. But if even a tiny minority of them are bad actors, then that is a major problem.

“Today we don’t know where these people are, nor what they are doing,” said [Former director of Venezuela’s Office of Identification, Migration and Foreigners ] Medrano, who currently resides in the United States.

“They can be anywhere in the world, traveling with Venezuelan documentation,” adding that the number of Middle Eastern individuals with irregular Venezuelan documentation could be much larger.

And apparently there is a guy in Venezuela that’s been tied to Hezbollah, to the chances that some of thoose 10,000 people are bad actors is not zero.
