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
Zer0 and all the cover-up people aside, the MSM has screwed this country. This will come out, and if not for FReepers and other good sites, this will get swept under the rug. GOD BLESS FREEPERS...this must come out...and come out loud!!!!
This is going to get VERY interesting, and I am highly curious as to what that bastard is hiding, as it seems a LOT of other people in this country are also beginning to open their eyes, and wonder for themselves.
I am sure it is and I agree with you; but so many of the talkers from the right aren’t talking either.
I hope these people it’s not just them; it’s all of us in America are threatened if something is not done.
That's why he became The One's top "terrorism and intelligence" adviser. (commits the first and lacks the second?)
The incidents raise questions as to whether the information was accessed for political purposes and why two contractors involved in the Obama search were dismissed before investigators had a chance to interview them.
I assume the deed has been done and the evidence destroyed by now???
Thank J rob if they don’t show up!
Department was not aware of the incidents until Thursday afternoon. Breaches occurred January 9, February 21 and March 14.
A State Department source said passport files contain scanned images of passport applications, birth date and basic biographical information, records of passport renewal, and possibly citizenship information.
Hillary and the FBI files come to mind.
TANKS a bunch,,,
It seems like this O’Bammy krap gets deeper by the day...:0/
If you believe this was a conspiracy right from the start, to first find out what the government knows about Obama's travel and supporting documents, and then take steps to neutralize that, then hiring the people who snooped on your records in the first place makes perfect sense.
This isn't a cover-up,. This is awarding the contract to the people who proved themselves successful during the trials.
This is not going away.
The pieces never fit with a lie.
The more you tell the more it shows.
1. Why is it so hard to get someone----for instance, state and federal courts---to force president-elect Obama to simply follow the laws of the United States Constitution by providing documents---like a Hawaii long form birth certificate---- that prove that he, Obama, is eligible to be President of the United States?
2. Obama ordering men into battle scares me: Obama orders men into battle and some of them die, but later we find out that Obama was not eligible to be President of the United States and had no right to order men into battle in the first place.
The scary part is he is not “one of us” and he intends to destroy us.
I’ll just post on your link for future reference. Nice trick, Eagles.
I guess it’s gunna be a Lie to cover a Lie for the next
Jan 9 to see what the file had in it; Feb 21st to make copies of what needed sweeping, follow up at other sources, and changing; March 14 to insert forgeries.
Gee ya think. Passport files contain citizenship information. Who'd a thunk it?
Obviously not the DUmmies at CNN.
Politicization of intelligence proceeds apace.
The guy was a donor, did this favor, got the quid pro quo of the offer of DCI but shied away when Hussein's monkey-fairies screeched about waterboarding.
Wait til they learn of Panetta's complicity in extreme rendition.
Johnsen is rebuilding Gorelick's Wall.
The "change" is the crypto-islamo-commie from Kenyanistan on the throne ordering the gates opened for Ahmadinejad's Trojan Horse.
This sounds interesting, files I suppose are more stringently backed up and with more secure copies since its been found our enemies wish to deploy ESM devices to try and cripple us electronically.
I firmly believe the record of Obamas passport is being reviewed in a certain chamber at this very minute.
All of the evidence cannot remove Obama from the office because of the football field size of dominoes that will collapse if he is pulled out right now, so I am betting the gameplan is to let him act out as POTUS, there will be no mention of this to the public, Obama will just be an actor until a convenient time that he can either be removed without causing riots and panic or his term expires.
There are powers that can do this, for all intents and purposes everyone will see him in position as POTUS, he will be registered as President but behind the scenes more prudent and legal minds will lead America.
Very few dominoes, but the threats of violence will now be ratcheted up by the Axelrod operatives. The existence of the INS port of entry doc from 1961 will light their fuse. But this guy is not more important than our Constitutional contract being abrogated by a affirmative action fraud.
I wonder what was cauterized during the blackout in Hawaii ?
Yes I hear that threats are being made against at least one individual I know of that frequents here and is a staunch opponent to Obama.
its the age of the internet
there is really no true anonymity, case in point was the son of a ranking democrat that hacked Sarah Palins emails, he thought his Ananomizer software kept him hidden, it lasted like three seconds.
it can work both ways, we can track them too.
For what it’s worth, I posted this locally elsewhere topic being concervative media unwillingness to address issues....

The only explanation Ive heard for the conserv pundits to ignore this issue is that they have come to recognize that
certain events had to take place in order to hold BO to rights.
No efforts to put this issue forth prior to the election got any traction.
And pushing the issue was against the kid glove republican approach to this election.
[this is much more a condemnation of the RNC and McCain than it is the conserv media in that said media was given nothing to work with. The evidence was not well digested at this point. And very few wanted the tin hat label without some cover (or at least acknowledgement) by the RNC/conservative leaders]
After the election, realize the following had to take place in order to establish plaintiffs (those hurt) and defendants(BO et al)...
- The electors have to certify BO and Plugs. In spite of efforts to educate, the electors as a group, blindly accepted the tainted evidence of eligibility.
- The congress had to certify the elector votes. Again, in spite of efforts to recruit honorable reps and sens to legitimately question, NO HONORABLE REPS OR SENS WERE FOUND!
This is probably the most disturbing logical conclusion.
Meanwhile several lawsuits were brought, denied, rejected, appealed and BOs phantom position was represented in at least some by expensive law firms. And many rightly question why this tactic would be taken rather than simply producing a $10.00 document.
Still no food for the conservative pundits to hang on at this point.
We have multiple cases before the supreme court in various stages and with various dates of consideration.
Each case has some merit - if you have followed this issue. But none contend that they have solid evidence of wrongdoing. All require the production of back documentation of BOs legitimacy (cause NO ONE knows who this clown really is!!!)
Getting the documentation right now doesnt disqualify BO simply because there must be a court debate about both the evidence and the constitutional presidential requirements.
However, BO knows there are constitutional issues involved(he claims expertise in this area) and realizes that he could be forced to produce documentation at some point.
So, BO can...
1. Withdraw now under some silly excuse.
2. Release everything and hope for the best.
3. Persist, be sworn in, and hope for no exposure - ever.
4. Persist, be sworn in, and perjure himself.
And there are a couple of other possibilities....
1. All discovered documentation is complete, valid,
and completely aboveboard.
2. All discovered documentation has been swept clean
and cannot be exposed for years or ever.
Judge Roberts is forcing the issue.
He will swear in Obama on Jan. 20. Why not?
He knows, as do the other justices, the issues and the ramifications - but not necessarily all the facts.
He knows that Obamas inauguration will either be valid or perjured.
If, upon consideration of the cases filed and to be filed, Obama is clean, all has been done properly under the constitution.
If, any filed cases should cause the release of information that causes eligibility to be REJECTED, Obama has committed perjury and BO as POTUS is invalid.
If Obama has committed perjury/fraud, his standing is invalid and, in essence, he never
became president. Some submit that certain circumstances would result in his expulsion as an illegal alien but that is dependant on documentation not yet available.
If Obama has not committed perjury, then his fraud can continue just subject to random
citizen cases claiming he was never eligible in the first place.
Obama only commits perjury if he accepts the oath of office from Judge Roberts!
(provided of course that he is indeed the fraud that many rightly contend)
Therefore, it is a good thing to hail the inauguration and wish well blah, blah, blah.
And enjoy the precise mechanizations of the Supreme Court aka Judge Roberts.
TO THE ORIGINAL QUESTION
Where are they? They could be in line for a bail out. Fox is supposedly being bought (partially) by the Saudis
That still doesnt answer why theres been a total conservative blackout both on the radio, tv, and newsprint . . . After all, Ann Coulter (and I love her dearly) is supposedly a Constitutional lawyer . . . why NO COMMENT WHATSOEVER anywhere, anyplace, at any time.
All the other controversial crap about Obama was thrashed so thoroughly these past couple years, but NOTHING ABOUT THIS! NOTHING! Apparently, Rush, Levin, and Hannity (et al) are screening ALL CALLS to eliminate anything about this attack on our constitution. I dont get it!
Sounds like it should be a SLAM DUNK! Do they know something that we dont?

Bottom line is that Rush/Hannity/Beck and others dont do investigative journalism. Their business is fronting known facts and issues to their audience plus commentary.
As some would say
They got no ammo in their magazines.
Its kinda unfair to blame them for the lack of facts surrounding
Baracks tremendous farce.
The Supreme Court is fixin to load those mags.
It will then be up to our favorite commentators to
aim, and fire.
Like my Dad told me .
they always get theirs in the end
Kinda simple but (in my experience) true.

My current point being that most of the evidence is there but it only matters inasmuch as the Supreme Court deals with it.
This may explain in some detail about this ominous collusino at the top of this Pyramid scheme of schemes to get Obama into office.
Hurry up and wait time.
Thanks, this is the exact impressions I get when I look at the big picture, we should welcome this inauguration as if it truly was christ coming back from the dead, because at that very stage everything changes, the hobbles are flung aside and the horses will run then.
From a view of the best interest of America we must give them their drug fix so to speak, and while they are sleeping of the euphoria of success and in your face comments to the conservatives the legal clockwork will start its explorable countdown.
Obama may have won the Kentucky Derby but his remaining days will be just public stud service.
