Obama's Intelligence Adviser Involved in Security Breach
Monday, January 12, 2009 1:46 PM
Obamas top terrorism and intelligence adviser, John O. Brennan, heads a firm that was cited in March for breaching sensitive files in the State Departments passport office, according to a State Department Inspector Generals report released this past July.
The security breach, first reported by the Washington Times and later confirmed by State Department spokesman Sean McCormack, involved a contract employee of Brennans firm, The Analysis Corp., which has earned millions of dollars providing intelligence-related consulting services to federal agencies and private companies.
During a State Department briefing on March 21, 2008, McCormack confirmed that the contractor had accessed the passport files of presidential candidates Barack Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and John McCain, and that the inspector general had launched an investigation.
Sources who tracked the investigation tell Newsmax that the main target of the breach was the Obama passport file, and that the contractor accessed the file in order to cauterize the records of potentially embarrassing information.
They looked at the McCain and Clinton files as well to create confusion, one knowledgeable source told Newsmax. But this was basically an attempt to cauterize the Obama file.
At the time of the breach, Brennan was working as an unpaid adviser to the Obama campaign.
"This individual's actions were taken without the knowledge or direction of anyone at The Analysis Corp. and are wholly inconsistent with our professional and ethical standards," Brennans company said in a statement sent to reporters after the passport breach was made public.

Yup. Many called it at the time.
We’re in for a bumpy ride.
Excerpt from the NewsMax article today:
“The passport files include personally identifiable information such as the applicants name, gender, social security number, date and place of birth, and passport number, according to the inspector general report.
The files may contain additional information including original copies of the associated documents, the report added. Such documents include birth certificates, naturalization certificates, or oaths of allegiance for U.S.-born persons who adopted the citizenship of a foreign country as minors.”
Where is the FBI? Compromised, I assume.
I see an obstruction of justice charge and jail time in this guys future.
I had to supply and original copy of my birth certificate to get my passport.
Well, well, well....isn’t that interesting?
Gotta bookmark this one and wait for more. Thanks, dascallie.
Yes, where is the FBI and where the you know what is the Supreme Court?
Obama is getting away with murder here; while they sit on their you know what’s doing everything in their power to duck this issue.
My question is why?
How long before N-S and Star get here to tell us that any concerns we may have are all hogwash. LOL
I’ve heard conspiracy theory tin-foil hat stuff, but even that does not make sense.
The fix is in, someone (many of them) stand to make a lot of money selling us out. This is the only way it makes sense.
I feel strongly that soon, within 2 months a resistance will form. Not openly armed, but organized resistance. This is an Un-American event we are watching. Patriots will not go along.
Physical threats against individual’s families might be part of it. Something very, very ominous is going on.
remember O’Bammy connected to it...
Many work unpaid in the OPEN. But not unpaid under the TABLE.
Curious if this will go anywhere. Laws were broken.
We aren’t stupid, this was obvious from day one when this story broke around the time people were wondering about his passport to travel to Indonesia. Do we have a coup going on? I don’t know what to think honestly.
was about to ping hoosiermama, but see that you have done so
