Obama's, McCain's and others passport files have been breached by State Department employees.

If these high profile political peoples passport files have been breached, I'm POSSITIVE I, who is among the many LITTLE PEOPLE with passports, have been breached, also. EVERY SINGLE aspect of MY personal life, can be found in my passport file! I for one, have done everything in my power, such as shredding papers which contain my name and address, but what the hell for, when our own government has proven such incompetence at keeping State Department SNOOPS from accessing these presidencial canidates private information?

WHY was this information kept from the American people for so long?

"We're sorry," just DOESN'T cut it for for American people!

I still worry about the day the Department of Veteran's Affairs lost a VA laptop back in 2006, which contained over 20 million veteran's identfying personal informations such as SSN's, DOB, etc. I DO NOT appreciate the fact that I, as well as 20 million military veterans, must be VIGILANT for the rest of my life when it comes to my financial and personal information which was in that LOST laptop!

And lets not forget the 4.2 million credit and debit card numbers stolen in March of this year, from a U.S. Supermarket Chain!

Personal Privacy in the digital age is more illusion than reality. Since I am a private citizen and own my own domains looking up my address, phone number, etc is painfully easy. I have learned to accept this and be vigilant. It is the trade off I have had to make to live in the future.

But when people are actively malicious and abuse the trust given them there is a real problem that needs to be addressed. Crossed fingers and happy thoughts will not work. Systems of oversight are required will stiff, real penalties to deal with the issues. In 2008 I don't fear the crack dealer out on the corner hocking his wares but the sequestered computer geek planning how to get my information the next time I decide to purcahse something online.

Personal Privacy
Not only do I own a few Family Friendly domains, but a few adult domains, also. Because I own adult domains, I realized from the very beginning that my address and phone number could be found by inquiring minds. This is why I paid up the nose to have this information kept from the public. If for some unknown reason this information is leaked, the only thing I’ll be worried about is my safety.

Both passport files and Military Vets is an ENTIRELY different matter, because these files not only contain addresses and phone numbers, but Social Security numbers, where we were born, our financial status, and EVERYTHING else about our lives, but also personal information about family members. Because of a certain job, I’ve had both a Confidential and Secret Clearance. Not only was my entire live checked, but also the lives of my parents, and close relatives. Now that see the incompetence of government officials, I’m worried as hell!

As for the online thing, I have always had to use my Visa and American Express cards due to my internet business (domains). A couple of years ago, I received a bill from American Express for over $10,000. These purchases came from a well known electronic business. I immediately call American Express and told them I had NOT made these purchases. American Expressed wiped out these charges where I didn’t have to pay a cent. While I’m at it, I fully RECOMMEND American Express.

perhaps it will make em think twice about the Patriot act......like their privacy is more important than mine...

The Patriot Act? What Were They Thinking?
Oh, but those of us who aren't lucky enough to be high ELITE officials in government, are peasants, mere little NOBODY bugs to be BUGGED for whole lot!

Wonder if Bush's passport files have been breached, and if not, then why not?

That's scary stuff! :(

Scary, dangerous and downright diabolical!

Fail. The reason their files were "breached" is they are "high profile political people". Three contractors in the state department looked up the information because they wanted to know about those specific people. Kind of like if they decided to look up Pamela Anderson's or Tom Cruise's information.

You, on the other hand, are "high profile" anything. To assume information was breached because presidential candidates' information was breached is the height of conceit.

What does Pamela Anderson have to do with this?
You are living in La La Land Dave. You’re right, little people like myself aren’t high profile ANYTHING, but we sure have been at the TOP of their list from the very beginning when it comes to snooping into our private lives. This breach which has been recently exposed has to be a FIRST for HIGH profile political people.

And what does Pamela Anderson or Tom Cruise have to do with any of this? Are you saying Pamela Anderson is MORE than I am? If you are, you are the one who FAILED, because conceit has nothing to do with it. I AM just as good as Pamela Anderson or Marge Bouvier Simpson for that matter. It all has to do with mind over matter, and I, my dear Watson, MATTER!

I still worry about that as well. I got a letter just like you did.
Mar. 22nd, 2008 06:20 am (UTC)
thanks to that ASSHOLE ...
You, me, and the rest of the 20 million veterans will worry until the day we die, thanks to that ASSHOLE who took the laptop home with him!

I still have that letter. Do you?

If you're really afraid of identity theft, you can pay for services that deal with preventing that sort of thing and help you recover if something does wind up happening. The most famous one is Lifelock. Yeah, it costs money, but it'll take some of the worry out of your life.

It could very well be too late.

I agree Sunshine there is not accountability any more and our Privet info should stay Privet

Did you know they did the same thing when former President Clinton run for office the first time when he was a governor in 1992, and the then former President Bush Sr. just acted like so what we can do any thing we want. And we know His son is just like him and the only way they can keep in power and not get investigated is to get McCain elected lets hope we can get rid of them before they can do any more damages to our rights.

What part of gov't do actually think is untouched by corruption?

P.S. I'd like to breach you. :P
Apr. 10th, 2008 07:23 pm (UTC)
Just for starters, E.P.!

Breached...hmmm...now you've got me all hot and bothered! :o)

One reason there's a database that contains recent (since sometime in the 1990's, I think) passport records that are accessible to Consular Affairs employees is so that your citizenship can be verified quickly, rather than taking weeks while you wait for some clerk to locate the hard copy file in a warehouse somewhere.

Why is this important?

In my job, several times a week I assist American citizens who, while traveling abroad, have either lost their passport, or had it stolen from them. Because the application forms themselves are scanned and saved electronically, I can quickly log on to the correct database, verify their citizenship, and approve and have printed an emergency replacement passport, sometimes in as little as 30 minutes.

While a lot of naturalized Americans seem to take their naturalization certificate with them when they travel abroad (which isn't required that they do) in addition to their passport, if they lose their passport the nat. cert. is sufficient for me to issue a new passport. On the other hand, Americans who are born in the U.S. tend not to carry their birth certificates with them when they go on vacation, at least not most of them.

When your plane is leaving for the states in a matter of hours, being able to access that database can make a huge difference.

Thank you so much for this information!

People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime
You told me Savanah you wanted to see the rest of this saying

People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which it is, you will know exactly what to do.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up or out and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and it is now time to move on.

When people come into your life for a SEASON, it is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They may bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person or people involved; and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships, and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

I miss You Savanah
Keep safe and well my friend
come back Soon

Love Pete

Thank you so much for finding it. I think I'll make a web page with it.

I used to be friends with a guy who made millions off of id theft. He used to run drugs but quite cause this was far safer and he made a lot more money doing it. There is a lot more of this stuff going on than is making the news. Cause most of the cases of this don't get noticed.
