Obama Passport Breach - Political Motive?

Was there a political motive behind the breach in security that allowed 3 individuals to access Barack Obama's personal passport file on 3 separate occassions this year?

That is something the Obama campaign will seek to find out as they call for a full investigation.

"This is an outrageous breach of security and privacy, even from an administration that has shown little regard for either over the last eight years. Our government's duty is to protect the private information of the American people, not use it for political purposes," spokesperson for the Obama campaign Bill Burton said yesterday.

"This is a serious matter that merits a complete investigation, and we demand to know who looked at Senator Obama's passport file, for what purpose and why it took so long for them to reveal this security breach," he said.

2 people have been fired and one has been disciplined due to the breaches.

The State Department are looking into the matter, and there is a possibility that the FBI or Justice Department may be called in also to investigate.
