Obama Passport Scandal Linked to Clinton, Bush

Conroy: Snooping Employee's Boss in Passport Scandal Linked to Clinton, Bush

March 22, 2008
Please Distribute Widely

Dear Colleague,

New information regarding the contractors involved in the recent Obama Passport Breach continues to be released. Narco News' Bill Conroy learned on Friday that two of the three employees accused of meddling in Obama's Passport files work for Stanley Associates Inc., a major U.S. government contractor.

Conroy writes:

"Stanley, a publicly traded company, provides contracting services for dozens of government agencies through more than 100 locations nationwide. Among its clients is the State Department's Bureau of Consular Affairs — for which Stanley provides passport processing and support services."

Conroy also finds that the company opened a major passport processing plant in Arkansas in 2007. The opening celebrations attracted many notable figures:

"The ribbon cutting for the Arkansas facility last summer attracted a host of public officials, including the governor of the state, Mike Beebe; Mike Bush, the mayor of Hot Springs (where President Bill Clinton lived and attended school as a boy); and the Assistant Secretary of State for Consular Affairs, Maura Harty, who was a Clinton appointee and the former ambassador to Paraguay."

Conroy continues his coverage on the Passport scandal as The Washington Times reports that one of the employees involved in the breach "works for a company whose CEO is linked to Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign" and is an apparent advisor on intelligence and foreign policy. But Authentic Journalist Conroy calls out the newspaper on their feint:

"But what the Washington Times fails to mention in their hit piece disguised as serious journalism is that Brennan also has long ties to the Bush administration, as well as former CIA Director George Tenet – originally a Bill Clinton appointee.

"...And if Brennan has a loyalty, it is to his former boss and Clinton appointee George Tenet, who served as head of the CIA from 1997 to mid-2004 — under both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush."
