Identity theft easy for terrorists

Author: JT Smith

MSNBC: "In 1995, a Saudi exchange student named Abdulaziz Alomari at the University of Colorado
reported a common burglary. Thieves broke into his apartment and made off with Alomari's briefcase,
his passport tucked inside. Six years later, that passport was quite possibly carried by a hijacker onto
American Airlines Flight 11, the first to slam into the World Trade Center on Sept. 11. In an age where
marketing companies can track your every click on the Internet, how could a passport reported stolen
six years ago be used to gain entry into the United States?"
