Obama's Intelligence Adviser Involved in Security Breach ("cauterized" O's passport info)

Obama's Intelligence Adviser Involved in Security Breach

Monday, January 12, 2009 1:46 PM

Obama’s top terrorism and intelligence adviser, John O. Brennan, heads a firm that was cited in March for breaching sensitive files in the State Department’s passport office, according to a State Department Inspector General’s 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 Brennan’s 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," Brennan’s company said in a statement sent to reporters after the passport breach was made public.

Obama is also involved with Hsu, the other Ponzi scheme that started with the Clintons.

Do we have a coup going on?

It's sort of a "soft" coup. Everything seems to point to it. ACORN was standing by, no doubt, to initiate riots if Obama lost. I think Obama's just like Odinga. I know he's absolutely un-American at best. I really need to get a gun for protection.

It seems to me that his swearing in wouldn’t be the only case of perjury - didn’t he have to declare to each state of the Union that he was qualified to hold office under the Constitution?

Well, I hope we aren’t both wrong. And I like your Derby analogy.

Certainly I can’t see what’s coming but I can do two things...

1. Encourage each family I know to simply prepare like in tornado status - most families aren’t and should be..
2. Educate our friends, coworkers, and kids as to what the constitution and law really means.

I have never cared about people color or other folks religions - until- obviously, some religions want the death of Christians or, indeed, anything but muslim.
Real awakening-kinda like WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU THINGIN’
sort of revelation.
And to your other point...
Yup - Ya can “let” the horses run or,
the horses will run anyway.
I kinda prefer the wild ones myself.
But I got corraled and so should mr obamakentuckyderby. And I would match my stud service against his in a heart beat.

Lets assume SCOTUS really has Americas best interest in hand and yet still adhere to the Constitution.

They allow the inauguration to proceed though I have a gut feeling its going to be postponed for “weather” reasons.

Either recently, now or immediately after the ceremony SCOTUS or whatever acronym approaches Obama and they lay their cards out and show the Royal Flush against his busted flush, they own him, his soul, his speeches and his freedom.

Obama suddenly starts leaning to the center, or has he already done that?

We will look at this figure of a president and we will judge him and his supporters will cry day after day that he is becoming more of a republican, in some ways he is more so than McCain was right now.

I am not advocating him in ANY way shape or form, he is a tic stuck in our scrotum and if you yank him out now his head will pop off and create a worse infection.

His own party will furnish the fires of rejection and then the rest of the body will will appear and fall away.

His own followers will bring him down because he wears the signature coat of guilt.

To your point...
Yes.
And he also applied to the IL bar assoc. saying he had only one name in his backround! No mention on his (pitiful)website that he has multiple names as evidenced via indonesia school and bc records.

But closer to your point...
If he has deceived all 50 states regarding his eligibility, he is indeed - like well and truly f..ked.
He did sign eligibility papers for each state as far as I know. But, no state secretary felt they had the authority to verify his eligibility. Therefore, it kept filtering down.
When no one cries FOUL, the masses will just go along.
And the “masses” are generally ill-informed. That’s not a cut on the “masses”, it’s just a factual observation that CURRENTLY 18% watch the news(local/state/internation).
Think about it...
It’s a lot easier to glom onto a messiah(fake or not)
than it is to confront the much more complicated real
world.

Not likely. The weather at Reagan's 2nd inaugural (January 1985) was bitterly cold, so cold that all DC residents were advised to stay indoors if at all possible. The Inauguration wasn't postponed; Reagan's swearing-in took place in a private ceremony indoors and the Inaugural itself took place inside the Capitol.

But you may be right, if the weather is inclement and the organizers decide that crowds are of such a size that no public building would be available to handle them, it may be "rescheduled."

I am not advocating him in ANY way shape or form, he is a tic stuck in our scrotum and if you yank him out now his head will pop off and create a worse infection.

I once had a tick stuck in my arm. I removed it by holding a lit match next to its behind. The little bugger backed out quickly (head and all) and I was then able to burn it to a crisp. :)

Remember that Clinton was disbarred by the Supreme Court on Monday, October 1, 2001 (following an April disbarment lawsuit by the Arkansas Supreme Court, related to his giving misleading testimony in the Paula Jones sexual harassment case). http://famguardian.org/Subjects/LawAndGovt/News/ClintonDisbar-011001.htm

I have a confession to make, that really happened to me when I was a teen, and it did get infected because the head stayed.

So....

We cannot yank the blod engorge Marxist tick lest we leave behind the head and jaws.

We can perform hit and run tactics against his followers, they are already reaching a critical mass of astonishment that the promises made to make them followers was false lies to support their demi-god at their expense.

I remember watching the sequel to the classic movie The Guns of Navarone where they had but a limited amount of explosives to crack the dam, but if placed properly and set off in stages it creates shockwaves combined with the weight behind it creates fissures and cracks and ultimately failure.

Obama has a massive amount of weight about to be lowered onto him immediately after the inauguration.

Israel will ignore him and the public will deride and castrate him because he has failed to prevent Israel from Attacking Iran. That is a near certainty, might be happening this very moment for all I know.

A massive sea oil refinery platform was launched years ago in the North Sea, huge was an understatement, somebody welded a gusset for a sea hydrophone in the wrong place and a crack started, it sank the rig.

We can hammer the wedge in his cracks and no amount of infinite monkeys will save him from sinking.

As I so fondly remember the scene of the movie Titanic, where the chairman of the White Star Line claims its unsinkable, and the reply, “If its made of iron(or steel) it will surely sink”.

“didn’t he have to declare to each state of the Union that he was qualified to hold office under the Constitution?”

Indeed correct Mr. Scott...
In my small mind, I believe there are at least 50 challanges that can be filed - one for each state - since NO state secretary had the onions to dispute the paperwork coming from the DNC.

So, who’s responsible for this fraud on the ballot or through the elector process??
My personal reaction is that Dean, Reid, and Pelosi are the primary players but I also expect Emmanual, Shummer, Kennedy(the drunk/sunk elder) and kerry are fully on-board with this (political)abortion.

Perhaps the supermarket tabloids will do the job that our [voluntarily] state-controlled media will not do. This sounds like an excellent investigative project for the National Enquirer, which has been surprisingly accurate on a number of political scandal stories in recent years.

After Sharp Words on C.I.A., Obama Faces a Delicate Task
New York Times, The (NY) - Wednesday, December 3, 2008
Author: MARK MAZZETTI and SCOTT SHANE
Abstract: Pres-elect Barack Obama faces task of selecting Central Intelligence Agency director who holds beliefs consistent with those he espoused on campaign trail, where he was harshly critical of Bush administration’s most controversial counterterrorism programs, from hiding suspects in secret agency jails to questioning them with methods he denounced as torture; CIA veteran John O Brennan ‘s withdrawal from consideration for job sends message that those who worked in agency during war on terror may not have chance; Obama advisers are set to meet with group of retired generals and admirals, who will urge him to stand firm against deviation from military’s noncoercive interrogation rules, but even some senior Democratic lawmakers who have been vociferous critics of Bush administration policies want to retain flexibility on interrogation techniques (M)

Passports probe focuses on one worker - State Department to use polygraph in case
Washington Times, The (DC) - Saturday, March 22, 2008
Author: Bill Gertz and Jon Ward, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

EXCERPT

Mr. McCormack said yesterday there was a fourth person who breached the passport records, although he described it as a case of inadvertance. He said a passport office trainee last year was learning how to work with passport electronic records and searched for Mrs. Clinton’s file as a test, but was “immediately admonished, and it didn’t happen again.”

Working-level supervisors confronted the three employees after a computer alarm system was triggered by the effort to access Mr. Obama’s records.

“What didn’t happen is that that information didn’t rise up to senior management levels, so that we could be made aware of it. That should have happened,” Mr. McCormack said.

If senior officials were alerted to the intrusions, additional safeguards would have been used to protect the data, Mr. McCormack said.

Officials said the computer alarm that was set off includes a notification mechanism that should have alerted State’s inspector general. However, it is not clear whether the IG reviewed the improper computer activities, the officials said.

Passport Files of Three Presidential Candidates Were Breached
Los Angeles Times (LATWP News Service) (CA) - Friday, March 21, 2008
Author: Letta Tayler=(c) 2008, Newsday

EXCERPT

The contact workers opened Obama’s and McCain’s files earlier this year — in Obama’s case, as recently as last week. Supervisors were alerted by a computerized alert system that flags unauthorized peeks into high-profile passport files.

A fourth employee casually opened Clinton’s file last summer during a training session with another worker and was reprimanded, McCormack said.

Passport files include such information as Social Security numbers that could allow sleuths to access credit history and other personal details.

Two workers were from Stanley, Inc., a Virginia company that just signed a five-year, $570 million contract to work on the State Department’s passport database, The Associated Press reported. A third worker was contracted from the Analysis Corporation (TAC), which is headed by John O. Brennan, a former CIA agent who advises Obama’s campaign on intelligence and foreign policy, the Washington Times reported. The paper also said the State Department was conducting polygraph tests.

SNEAKS PEEKED AT OBAMA FILE - FEDS AX 2 PASSPORT GAWKERS
New York Post (NY) - Friday, March 21, 2008
Author: GEOFF EARLE Post Correspondent

EXCERPTS

The incidents occurred in January, February and March, as Obama burst onto the national scene to become a top contender for the Democratic presidential nomination, but Obama wasn’t informed about it until yesterday, his campaign said. Passport files are supposed to be kept secure under the Privacy Act, and employees are instructed not to read them without authorization.

The fired employees got caught by a computer system that monitors people who dig into files of “high-profile” individuals.

(snip)

State Department officials said the files probably contained Obama ‘s passport applications, which include information like date of birth, travel plans and Social Security number.

They couldn’t say for certain that the fired employees didn’t pass the information on.

Obama has a particularly diverse background that makes his file juicy. His father was from Kenya, and as a child, Obama lived in Indonesia - a country subject to travel warnings and terror threats.

He made a 2006 visit to Kenya that attracted national attention at the time, and more recently, when photos surfaced of him in tribal garb.

Obama part of group locked up at Russian airport // U.S. delegation stripped of passports as guards demand to inspect plane
Chicago Sun-Times (IL) - Monday, August 29, 2005
Author: Lynn Sweet, Sun-Times Washington Bureau chi

WASHINGTON — Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.) were not allowed to leave a Russian airport Sunday and were locked in a room briefly.

The incident prevented their departure for about three hours, but Obama told the Sun-Times “it ended up not being a very big deal.”

The senators had their passports seized by local officials at an airport in Perm. Obama said the officials demanded, unsuccessfully, to inspect the DC-9 military aircraft being used by the congressional delegation for the trip.

(snip)

Although he was on a first-time diplomatic mission, Obama has traveled extensively, spending part of his youth in Indonesia and visiting Kenya, where his father was born. He noted that as a back- packing college student he had “a lot less leverage than this time.”

Obama , a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, and Lugar, its chairman, left Wednesday for a trip to inspect sites where nuclear and biological weapons are slated to be destroyed in Russia, Ukraine and Azerbaijan. On Sunday, the U.S. group was scheduled to fly from Perm to Kiev, Ukraine. But border guards wanted proof that the group’s aircraft — which Obama said looked like a “mini-Air Force One” — was really an official U.S. government plane, which would be exempt from an inspection.

Robert Gibbs, Obama ‘s spokesman traveling with him, said in an e-mail that “the border guards took our passports and demanded to inspect our aircraft, which we refused. We were moved to a room to wait.”

“At one point they were demanding to inspect virtually everything, including the gifts their representatives at the missile facility had given us.” The border guard said “they were acting on the authority of the FSB,” the Russian intelligence agency.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice phoned Obama and personally apologized for the breach. “I told him that I myself would be very disturbed if I learned that somebody had looked into my passport file,” Rice told reporters. She phoned Clinton and McCain and offered similar apologies.

Okay, maybe it's just me, but this solidifies a theory I've had for some time-

We no longer have a 2 party system. There is one system with 2 parts and one of the main function of each is cleaning up the messes made by the other part.

Americans need to realize these are Bush's people who allowed this to happen, instead of STANDING up to the obligations of their offices and actually serving the interests of the country. Prosecutions of those responsible for the breach, if nothing else.

Now the Dems step in to pick up the crumbs.

[sigh]

It's gonna be a LONG 4 years.

Thanks for your thoughts in post #47 and I am pinging to others.

You have given me some great food for thought and perhaps you are correct. I have been so disappointed in my favorite conservative talk show hosts for being silent concerning this Constitutional crisis. The unanswered questions about Barack Hussien Obama aka Barry Soetoro are so many, yet the simple documents to the answers remain sealed from public view. And many,like me, just ask WHY?

I do not want to believe that SCOTUS would let the questions go unanswered. The SCOTUS is our last hope for making sure the Constitution is upheld and that the person we have as Commander in Chief is constitutionally qualified.

You said — “Yes, where is the FBI and where the you know what is the Supreme Court?”

This thing happened way back when — “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.”

It’s been investigated and we’ve got Secretary of State Rice involved (”Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice phoned Obama and personally apologized for the breach. ‘I told him that I myself would be very disturbed if I learned that somebody had looked into my passport file,’ Rice told reporters.”), the State Department Inspector General (OIG) issuing a 104-page report on the breach last July, and the State Department (in general, saying “The State Department chalked up the passport file snooping discovered in March 2008 to ‘imprudent curiosity’ by contract employees hired to help process passport applications”), and Acting Assistant secretary for administration William H. Moser sent a six-page reply in regards to the recommendations for correcting this type of breach.

Now, with all those people and agencies and investigations going on, it would seem *very apparent* that if there is a violation of the Constitutional requirements for the office of President of the United States (which would be clear from the passport), this item would be known by all those people, and it goes right back to George Bush.

Bush is sworn to uphold the Constitution, and obviously since he doesn’t see a problem there (and is in a position *to know* for sure, and “especially so” with Secretary of State Rice, being involved in this and being directly under President Bush) — that this is fairly clear evidence that there isn’t a problem. If there was, President Bush would be *duty-bound* to uphold the Constitution.

Of course, there are people like Berg, who think that Bush was involved in the attack of 9/11, too. And I suppose..., there will be people here who will say Bush is also “involved” in the conspiracy to hide the information about Obama not being qualified under the Constitutional requirements...

It’s amazing what conspiracy theorists will come up with, it seems...

Sen. Burris of Illinois: While reading and listening about the Senate debate on whether or not Burris had the correct credentials to be seated in the Senate, I started to wonder about the the credentials of other Senators and if such credentials were part of the public record.

1. A Senator must be at least 30 years old and an American citizen.

2. The 2 Senators in each of our states: I wonder how each Senator verified that he/she was 30 years old and an American citizen.

3. For instance, does each state have a special folder somewhere that holds all the legal documents provided by each Senator that proves that he/she is 30 years old and an American citizen?

4. We posters should try something like this: We should write to each of our Senators and simply ask this question: What documents did you provide state officials BEFORE election day that prove that you were at least 30 years old and an American citizen?

5. In addition, we should contact state government officials to find out if they have a special folder for each Senator that holds legal documents that prove that the Senator is at least 30 years old and an American citizen.

6. Obama: For instance, what legal documents did Obama provide Illinois—documents that Illinois should have in a permanent file somewhere—-that proved that he was at least 30 years old and an American citizen when he ran for U.S.?

7. Or, did the state of Illinois simply take Obama’s word that he was at least 30 years old and an American citizen, and so it did not require Obama to provide any legal documents?

8. Part of the public record: Shouldn’t Senator Obama’s documents that prove that he is at least 30 years old and an American citizen be part of the public record?

9. Burris of Illinois: Shouldn’t his credentials that prove that he is at least 30 years old and an American citizen be part of the public record?

10. What about Sen. Reid of Nevada: Shouldn’t the legal documents that prove that he is at least 30 years old and an American citizen be part of the public record?

11. Again, a suggestion: Contact your state officials and see if you can get copies of your 2 Senators’ legal documents that prove that they are at least 30 years old and an American citizen as required by the U.S. Constitution.

12. As I see it, such eligibility records of each U.S. Senator should be part of the public record in each state.

13. For instance, I wonder what legal documents Sen. Durbin of Illinois provided Illinois officials that prove that he is at least 30 years old and an American citizen.

I agree with what you say; except for the conspriacy theory. Berg could be suspect as far as that is concerned. I don’t quite know what to think about Rice and her actions; and maybe Bush knows or doesn’t know.

This would have never blown up if Obama had honestly released information about himself. Instead he spends a bunch of money to hide everything. Says hardly anything about his family. Of course if there is a real conspiracy theory; it could lie with Obama and his group to distract us or make it look like we are conspiring. So who knows.

I do believe the question of the bc and passport are valid; as they do affect our Constitution. We don’t want and shouldn’t want anyone ineligible in office. There are just to many unanswered questions about Obama and to little experience on his side for him to become POTUS.

Is that ‘cauterized’ or ‘Carterized’ like when Jimmy Carter ‘fixed’ John F’n Kerry’s military records?

I wouldn’t count on the evidence being destroyed by now. Saved to use as blackmail, in all probability.

The factcheck photos of the COLB were created around the same time as the passport break in. Remember the exif data?

Brennan was originally going to be nominated for a bigger position, but he declined so that he wouldn’t become a distraction (or so he said). Probably he would have to be confirmed (and maybe grilled) in a hearing. This new position may not require confirmation.

Biden headed the committee that has oversight of the passport agency. Obama specifically requested that the oversight committees be involved in the investigation of the breach. Now Biden is Obama’s VP.

The report is heavily redacted. Check it out. Pages and pages of black boxes. Might it be available under the FOIA?

Heads up:

Star Traveler is a Obama communication jammer and will drain your brain to dilute any negative Obama reports.

There may be multiple posters under the name of Star Traveler—seems they are dispatched whenever a hot Obama story surfaces.

Apparently there is some perverse delight by this “entity” in building notoriety by using the moniker ‘Star Traveler’...although many of us know that it appears under other psuedo screeen names as well. But “Star Traveler” is the pet name.

I would not waste a molecule of energy on this thing—it is deisgned to obscure, confound and create circular, exhausting arguments.

this just showed up in Smoking Gun; the guy snooped in all kinds of passport files, including those of unnamed politicians.

Maybe he’ll right a book in prison and spill the beans about obummer’s Indonesian citizenship!!

Or he might be the next head of the CIA under the Obama. Democrats don’t prosecute their heroes.

Interesting,,,I remember this passport mess but I don't remember O’Bammy connected to it...

Obama was the one who screamed the loudest. It didn't make sense because he was the least well known person whose file was accessed yet he made the biggest fuss over it.

You have to know there have been a lot of intelligence agencies in a full court press over Obama’s passport, birth certificate, etc.

If Obama is not being blackmailed already, he will be soon. Any bets on who will be first? China, Israel, Russia?

We are on the same page here. That was my first thought when I read of 0’s detainment by Russian intelligence. First-time diplomatic mission?!

I agree that it’s a steaming pile, but I just can’t keep up with all the trolls.

Someone with that much faith in the goodness of those who are in guvmint service strikes me as extraordinarily gullible or disingenuine in a Clintonian way.

One thing for lurkers to keep in mind is that passports just report citizenship, not Natural Born Status. My wife has a US passport and she was born in Taiwan. Of course, if she’d wanted to, and knowing what we now know about the Hawaiian CoLB process, she could have picked up a CoLB from Hawaii and very likely have a passport that shows her being born in Hawaii.
