WASHINGTON (CNN) - An individual disciplined for improperly accessing Sen. Barack Obama's passport files also viewed Sen. John McCain's passport file in 2008 without authorization, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said Friday.
Full story: Presidential candidates' passport files breached
Obama's camp wants to make a big deal out of this as a distraction. Let the DOJ do there job and investigate. In the meantime Camp Obama tell us when Barack Obama will stop talking in circles like were all stupid and give us some facts about what he'll do about the economy, War, Jobs, housing and yes Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
Jessica- do your parents know that you are posting on web sites?
So Clinton and McCain get an aoplogy when Rice gets around to it but for Obama "stop the presses" and get right on it. Could it be that McCain and Clinton didn't care and weren't even surprised by it? Seems like an undue amount of outrage by the Obama camp.
Seeing as how the Obama breach broke last night, and McCain and Clinton were only determined to have been breached late this morning – that's probably your reason jessica.
Is Obama WHINING?
Where is the "Change and Positivity" now?
Bill Clinton was livid when George Bush senior did the same thing to him. It warranted a federal investigation. And I'm guessing that the Clinton and McCain campaigns are going to be just as outraged by the end of the day. And rightfully so.
He found out first. If you notice, the news about him broke first.
Senator Obama didn't jump up and down. He was the first informed and more attention was paid for that reason. Yes, he is ready and some day you will be very, very glad he sits in the Oval office.
Who said Obama jumped up and down? His was reported first.
Why is this front page news anyway? It's fine for the ticket but as far as headlining.....yawn.
Didn't Obama blame the administration? Very Presidential. NOT!
Well, right now, the only serious breaches are into Obama's and Mccain's file. Clinton's file was viewed accidentally by an intern. This leaves suspicions on who ordered this in the hope of mining "useful" information wide open.
Hillary and Bill both jumped up and down when Bill's was improperly accessed when he was running for president in 1992. Obama was notified yesterday...that is why it is only him we have heard from Hillary wasn't notified until today. Give her time. She lacks the capability to respond quickly. McCain will respond too. I would be concerned about their capability to protect our rights if they are not concerned about their own.
Why does the Government have any secret information on it's citizens anyway? A criminal record is one thing, but personal info, why?
Strange that it would be only Obama and McCain by the same person in 2008? Is there a connection with the Clinton back room influence?
Wow I hope people are able to see through the media blitz last night and today for Obama ! Cnn it's to sad you have really lost my trust!
I dont believe that, they threw in Clinton and McCain's name so that we would not scream,,,Its a lie.. It was just Obama's
Obama did not jump up and down. He found out yesterday and asked for an investigation. Clinton and McCain just found out today and the investigation had already been launched. Get a grip.
dont believe the above comment.
Why wasn't Clinton's file breached? Oh, that's right. The breacher is on her campaign staff and already knows all of her dirty secrets.
You are crazy!!! This is a security problem for all Americans not politics.
Obama, will be our next president, get ready with Richardson on his side he will capture more votes from the latinos, and this country will move forward with all people in mind not just a select few.
He had every right to jump up and down. I'm not a Obama supporter by any means. However, The man does have a right to his privacy.
If someone off the street walked into your house and started looking through your financial records in your filing cabinet, would that not make you mad.
If obama's,clinton and mccain's details can be viewed – this really lends credence to the conspriacy theories out there
Maybe Obama is making a big deal of it because it is a big deal. It is unacceptable. We have security for a reason.
Obama – starting the Circus again!
Send in the Clowns – don't bother theyr'e here
God Bless America!!
