WASHINGTON (CNN) - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has told Sen. Hillary Clinton, a Democratic candidate for president, that her passport file was breached in 2007, the senator's office said in a statement on Friday.
"The State Department will be briefing Senator Clinton's staff this afternoon to provide details about the recent unauthorized breaches of passport records," the statement said. "Senator Clinton will closely monitor the State
Department's investigation into this and the other breaches of private passport information."
The news came a day after the State Department revealed that two of its contractors working for the department were fired and a third was disciplined after they accessed Sen. Barack Obama's passport file without authorization.

LOLL. and everyone was sooo quick to blame Hillary for being behind the breach on Baracks.
Hmmm could it be the republicans?!
Hey, where is Hillary's apology? Oh that's right, we only have to apologize to Obama...
Someone please call John McCain and suggest Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as a VP Choice. She runs circles around Barack H. Obama and HRC doesn't deserve to even be in the same room with her.
The Clinton "breach" happened as a result of training and employee. The McCain, and Obama files were accessed by the same person. I have a feeling that the American people are going to want to know, in short order, who that person is. Very, very, curious, isn't it?
Well Obama camp there goes idea it was the Clintons whowas involved in the Obama files.
Once again the arrogance of the Bush Administration has violate the privacy of an American citizen and done so without shame or guilt. They were simply caught red handed and sacrificed "humbly lambs" for committing such as task. Enough is enough.
This is just another example of invasion of privacy to which this administration has admitted to after the fact. In listening to the representative of the state dept sound sophomoric in his description of the incidents sounds at best business as usual. It's nothing more than the illegal spying on americans which this administration has done so well without impunity. Time to investigate and stop this unlawful behavior.
I guess that CNN will not be as angry about this news as they did yesterday.
Yesterday, it looks like a national disaster happened when CNN reported Obama's breaching event.
Did Condoleeza apologize to Hillary as she did to Barack? Or are we still tiptoeing around Obama?
So what does that mean?
I wonder what all the haters have to say now.
They all said that it was the Hillary campain but guess what you guys were wrong...
It was Obama.
He and Axelrod were the two contractors. :)
So, are we going to get an apology from the Obama crowd that yesterday tried to pin these breaches on Clinton?
R. Moran madison,wi
They were contracted by the state. Get your facts straight.
CNN why don’t you let people express their opinion?
I see you deleting comments and keep them in "moderation" for absolutely no reason.
What’s wrong with you people working there?
You're blaming the Administration for this invasion of privacy by a third-party contractor(s) working for the U.S. State Dept.? Get real!
We only know about this because the people affected are politicians who are known. Imagine ordinary people like you and I whose files were breached and there is not a soul out there to stand for us in the helm of affairs? It is a sad situation. Did I hear someone say they need four more years of this regime?
Where is Congress.
Whre is congress focusing on the issues concerning the Nation.
This a example of Gvt failures. Starting at the Economy to Civil Rights.
Hillary campaign insists that she is more electable
THAN WHY ISN"T SHE WINNING !!!!!!!!!
it took Obamas file to be breached to mention that many other files have previously recently been breached. How much breach has taken place...
surely US security system works.
