Obama’s Passport Breach: Unanswered Questions, and an Unsolved Murder

American Thinker

By Pamela Geller

Back  in March 2008, the State Department launched  an investigation of improper computer access to the passport records of  Barack Hussein Obama, and days later those of Hillary Clinton and John McCain.  The investigation centered on one employee: a contract worker for a company that  was headed by John O. Brennan, a key Obama campaign adviser who later became  assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for Homeland  Security and Counterterrorism.

Then,  a month later, the key witness in this case was  murdered.  Lt. Quarles Harris, Jr., 24, was shot in the head in his  car, in front of his church.

During  the 2008 presidential election, I ran a number of stories at my website,  AtlasShrugs.com, on the breach of Obama’s passport.  Fast-forward to four  years later, and there is no new information.  Why is this murder case not  being pursued?  Who at the State Department is covering up Obama’s passport  breach?  Lt. Harris told federal investigators before he was murdered that  he received “passport information from a co-conspirator who works for the U.S.  Department of State.”  What became of the “co-conspirator”?  Why  wasn’t he/she brought to trial?

I  always thought that the perpetrators rifled through Clinton’s and McCain’s files  to make it look as if they were looking for dirt on all three, but that it was  Obama’s passport records that they were actually interested in accessing.   Thus, secondarily, almost as an afterthought, there were “violations” concerning  Clinton and McCain.  For who stood to gain from a tampering, and  why?

There  is no way to tell what might have been done to Obama’s passport records by those  who accessed them.  Key information could have been altered or  destroyed.  On April 8, 2008, after the breach became public, Obama  confessed to having taken a trip to Pakistan in 1981.  The  then-candidate said: “I traveled to Pakistan when I was in college.”   Journalist JakeTapper was surprised and said: “This last part  — a college trip to Pakistan — was news to many of us who have been following  the race closely. And it was odd that we  hadn’t hear about it before, given all  the talk of Pakistan during this campaign.”

Did  Obama confess to this trip, which he doesn’t mention in either of his  autobiographies, because of the passport breach?  While the oft-repeated  charge that Americans were forbidden to travel to Pakistan in 1981 appears  to be false, questions remain about why Obama took the trip at all, and what  he did there.  Indian counterterrorism expert Bahukutumbi  Raman asked pointed questions about this trip:

Why  did he keep mum on his visit to Pakistan till this question was raised? Has he  disclosed all the details regarding his Pakistan visit? Was it as innocuous as  made out by him — to respond to the invitation of a Pakistani friend or was  there something more to it? As I read about Obama’s visit to Pakistan in the  1980s, I could not help thinking of dozens of things. Of the Afghan jihad  against communism. Of the fascination of many Afro-Americans for the jihad. Of  the visits of a stream of Afro-Americans to Pakistan to feel the greatness of  the jihad. Of their fascination for Abdullah Azzam[.]

It  bears noting that John Brennan has made some incredible pro-terror  remarks — some in Arabic no less — about the beauty of  jihad.

Raman  acknowledged that these were “morbid” speculations but said they were  “understandable when one has a feeling that one has not been told the whole  story, but only a part of it.”

And  Obama confessed to this trip two weeks after his passport was tampered  with.  There is a video here  of Obama’s response to the passport breach back on March 21, 2008.  It’s  telling that he assures everyone that he has nothing to hide: “not because I  have any particular concerns” (0:23).  This is before the birth certificate controversy.  Who would say  that — unless he did have particular concerns?

Obama  said at the time that attempts to “tap into people’s personal records” were “a  problem not just for me, but for how our government  functions.”

Laughable,  considering how intrusive his administration has been and continues to be in  accessing private information.

Also  laughable is the enemedia’s pretensions to journalistic integrity when they  refuse to ask these questions.  A man is dead, and there is abundant  evidence of improper conduct by Obama and his cronies, and the media lets the  story lie dormant for four years.  Lt. Harris deserves better.  So do  the American people.

  1. Obama and The Clinton(s) should compare lists of the “departed” to see who has the most!

  2. I believe the Clintons have that dubious distinction.
