Obama demands probe over passport breach


www.boston.com

Barack Obama's campaign tonight is demanding a full investigation of reports that his passport files at the State Department were viewed without authorization.

“This is an outrageous breach of security and privacy, even from an Administration that has shown little regard for either over the last eight years. Our government’s duty is to protect the private information of the American people, not use it for political purposes. This is a serious matter that merits a complete investigation, and we demand to know who looked at Senator Obama’s passport file, for what purpose, and why it took so long for them to reveal this security breach,” Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton said in a statement.

Apparently this happened in January, but is just being reported. Somebody was interested in Obama's passport files.

Two contractors have been fired, and a third contractor disciplined, over this.

Seems like Obama owes Busco an apology.

MODS:Can you fix the width on this thread, and fix the url in the OP?

This sucks! Why do the CIA not get investigated for illegally spying on regular American citizens? Yet these guys got fired for taking a sneak peak at his passport?! I guess the law only works if your a senator or have connections to the US president. Otherwise your screwed!
