This is capitalism, 2010 style. Why should a passport be any different than anything else that can be produced for a profit?

Making them here would be "cost prohibitive".

I can see your point. But is cost the only qualifier, in production of a document such as our U.S. passport? It's not like an instruction pamphlet for the latest mobile phone. There are other areas that the U.S. State Department can make a saving.
