Recent news stories recently raised questions about the fact that some of the components of U.S. passports are produced overseas. Questions were also raised about passport security and why foreign firms have been engaged as part of the passport production process. Under Secretary of State for Management Pat Kennedy joined Department Spokesman Sean McCormack for a video podcast to discuss these issues. This video walks you through the process and explains the new passport's new security features.

Thanks for the informative video detailing the very stong security in place for American passports. I think your video effectively and convincingly addressed passport security questions raised in a recent newspaper article.
