I really hope you can all see the problem here.

The State Department is making a profit on every passport ordered by a US citizen because it has outsourced printing to Asia, including a Thai company that has had had problems with Chinese espionage. Not only is this stupidity from an administration supposedly committed to keeping the USA safe, it may also be illegal since Congress requires such activities to be break-even rather than to profit from the citizens it supposedly serves.
