4. Sounds like a partisan hit job.
According to most of the stuff I've read, the government admits that the images were part of a journalistic investigation. But, they're prosecuting anyway because he broke the "letter of the law".

Yet, in a recent investigation by Dateline NBC, a Dateline journalist obtained fake passports from South American coutries and used them to enter the US in order to expose this security hole. I'm certain that there is a federal law making it a crime to enter the US on a forged document. Does anyone think the Dateline guy will get prosecuted for violating the "letter of the law" - even though there was a compelling journalistic purpose for doing it? Nah. Because the Dateline guy isn't on the Republican hit list.
