The reason the U.S. has had to incorporate high-tech features into its currency wasn’t because of domestic crooks.

It’s time for national security analysts to take note that counterfeiting is no longer a strictly criminal activity for profit, but a state-sponsored activity for political, war-making, diplomatic, and larger economic purposes.
