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.

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.
