Breached personal files of Obama

On Jan 9th....Feb. 21st and March 14th three civil service level contractors got into the personal files of Obama. They were all three from the same contracting company and two of them were fired and the third has been put on leave.

This is a very serious and clear violation of the Privacy act and could not only be a misdameanor but a felony if any information was passed on to anyone. It was caught almost immediately and yet not passed up the line to the higher state authorities.

This was three seperate occasions...so it was known and the authorities just found out yesterday.. There are many,many questions still not answered and shock through out the country.

It includes social security numbers, jobs and travel information. If someone could get into such a file as Obama's how safe are any of us? Although during the Clinton breach they didn't have such technical help detecting this sort of thing.

Only time will tell With God's help....we need to PRAY G-Ma :o) hugs

Sure, I'm glad I could help. Also from what I've heard while it is a breach of privacy and totally inappropriate its not actually a huge security problem. I don't know for sure but it sounds like its a little less problematic than some make it seem.

The problem as I could tell was that the higher ups weren't informed until just the day before yesterday..And it happened the first time in Jan. and that person was fired. So seems to me it is a problem. Then it happens again in Feb. and that person is fired and again in March and that person is suspended,,They all 3 worked for the same contracter too. and if it is so easily obtainable by them it makes one feel very un-easy. It showed S.S.#, travel Inform. and work...G-Ma :o) hugs

Government Authorities always think it is their right to keep information of its citizens big companies like Google, Sky etc are now insisting on getting every possible detail they can wring out of their clients and quite frankly I hate all this. The point is our info is no longer private no matter what they try and tell us.

I agree...what has happened to us? and our FREE country?

I mean I am no-body have nothing I want to hide..well eccept my SS# but there are people in high places that need protection from such things...and they must feel very frustrated..brb need a glass of vino  :o). and they feel they are above the law? Protecting themselves I suspect. didn't they realize firing these  people  it would bring questions ... In Jan  again  in Feb.and as early as Mar 14th. God   help   us.  Thanks for your comment and HAPPY EASTER   G-Ma :o) hugs

As everyone has heard by now, it happened to all 3 candidates. Not just Obama. When the news first hit about Obama's files, MSNBC along with Obama's campaign Spin Doctors blew it WAY out of proportion in an obvious attempt to defray all of the negative press about Obama and Rev. Wright. Keith Olberman of MSNBC even went as far as to compare it to Watergate even while they were being assured by the State Dept. that the breaches were simply acts committed by a few nosy low-level employees. It was ridiculous.

Of course now that it has been found out that one of the breaches was actually by an OBAMA campaign contributor AND that Hillary and McCain's files were breached too, MSNBC and Obama have had to chill their heals. Now their latest attempt at exageration and deflection is to go after Bill Clinton as the new McCarthy for a stupid little statement that they have blown WAY out of proportion. I'm not even a Clinton fan- but it's evident that the Obama camp is hurting and trying as hard as they can to manufacture something, anything to get out of the negative spotlight.

In essense, it all POLITICS, as usual.

Bottom line....this is a serious breach of privacy even in politics! G-ma you have a point on ss no. and all. Means there is so much at stake pertaining to security documents. Very messy indeed.

Thank You soyelude for that....I am not a real polictical , well spoken person..just too simple...but this really bothers me.  When I was being raised the one quote I have never forgotten from the communist was "we will take you from within"..and I am afraid they will.  Within our government and ourselves ..Oh dear Oh my..The Ten Commandments must be obeyed...G_ Ma :o) hugs
