Newsline: State Department says no visas from fake American embassy in Ghana used to enter US

None of the altered visas issued at a fake U.S. embassy in West Africa for seven years appears to have been used to enter the United States, the State Department said. State Department spokesman John Kirby said the visas were created from bought, stolen or otherwise illegally obtained passports. U.S. officials this summer discovered and shuttered the fake embassy in Accra, Ghana. However, news reports about the criminal operation began to appear only in the past several weeks, following a Nov. 2 posting on the State Department’s website. The embassy building flew a U.S. flag every morning for three days a week, and inside the building was a picture of President Obama.
