Condi Rice Puts End to Presidential Candidate “Breach Envy”


Have any of them been to Cuba? For a few hours, it seemed that only Barack Obama’s passport files had been breached.
Now we know that both John McCain’s and Hillary Clinton’s passport information have also been breached.
Rumor is that they’ll all get a courtesy call from Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to let them all know that they were all equally violated — so no chance of “breach envy.”

    Chief of firm involved in breach is Obama adviser
    There you go, Cee.


  2. Cee says:

    I recall that Joe Conason wanted to know about the passport record of Obama back in December.
    I want the names of the people who did the peeking.

    I don’t like this story.
    Yesterday Obama’s “senate office” got an off the cuff call about his breach.
    Today Rice called McCain and Clinton about their ‘also” breachs?
    The State Department last night said nothing about McCain and Clinton being breached. Why not?
    If they had the Obama breach on their records last night then they must have also had the Clinton and McCain breach on their records last night….unless the Clinton and McCain breach took place after hours last night. LOL…could it be?
    Ah, so many motives and intrigues covered with the old spinaroo of it was just happenstance incompetence. My favortive of all the recent government incompetence stories was the one where all the government agencies and the government men all failed prior to and then all at the same time, all on the same day of 911.

    I’m curious, does anybody know exactly what forms of information such a “passport file” might contain? Is there anything other than entry and exit records? Does it include other information that went into the passport application, or perhaps visits to consulates or other information? Also, is it possible to look at one’s own passport file by placing a request of some kind? I think this story still has a possibility of being significant if it turns out that the culprits can in any way be closely associated with others running in the race.

    Why all the fuss? Bush has almost certainly been listening to his political opponents for years via warrantless wiretaps. And some of those targeted even granted him the authority to do it. And now they complain about having their passport records breached?
