Concealment of Identity

Because the names of many people with terrorist connections are listed in various government databases, these individuals may seek to obtain false identification, claim to be of a different ethnicity, nationality, or language group, or use multiple names. Concealing the identity of operatives may be fundamental to the success of an attack.

Though false identification is easily obtained, there is rarely a perfect facsimile of a legitimate government-issued ID. Even rarer are consistent, high-quality falsified identities in multiple forms (i.e., driver's license, passport, etc.) Please report varied name spellings between different IDs, erasures; and intentionally damaged IDs. Use of "international driver's permits" or other questionable sources of ID should also be reported.
