Breaking: Clinton's passport file

According to breaking news from CBS this morning: "Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has told Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton her passport file was breached in 2007. This comes after similar news about Sen. Barack Obama's file."

The only thing that gives me any consolation at all is that in both cases, it was the government that discovered and reported the incidents (as opposed to having the incidents covered up by the government but discovered by the news media or whistleblowers).

Nevertheless, we simply cannot have government using private files against our presidential candidates (or other citizens). This really must be investigated to find out who did it, who (if anyone) authorized it, what were their intentions and has the information been disseminated and used.
