Obama's Passport Breach: Unanswered Questions and an Unsolved Murder
American Thinker ^ | July 23, 2012 | Pamela Geller

Posted on 07/23/2012 3:50:05 AM PDT by Flotsam_Jetsome

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 Jake Tapper 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."

The Pakistan trip has always bothered me. Not only the question of what passport Barky traveled to that country on, but the reason/rationale for visiting that country at a time when there was a State Department advisory pertaining to travel to that nation.

Staying with a college friend for three weeks? Wow, that's a compelling motive. . .

I would make this analysis. For the time-period that he was traveling....the government guys would not have had a vast computer network service to point at him for the type of travel that he did. I’d also suggest that his ticket likely was a New York City to Saudi Arabia ticket, and that he probably bought another ticket once in Saudi Arabia. Even today, you could do the same thing and avoid having US Customs poke into where you were traveling to.

As for the passport...it’s still an open question.

According to the "Obama" campaign in 2008 he stopped in Indonesia before going on to Pakistan. Would this accomplish the same thing?

I seem to recall having read on FR (happily welcome correction) that dude's mother and Maya weren't actually in Indonesia at the time. If true, that would make any stopover there a head scratcher.

In all fairness, so are all the others

Not raising the Birther/Eligibility issue only helps Obama.

Had this issue been adressed by the conservative media a few years ago, we would not be concerned at all with Obama getting a second term...he would have no chance of winning

And, like other "hot" radioactive isotopes, it will probably have a "half-life" of about 10K years before it's safe to handle.

I don’t understand how people just take his word for it. I mean the guy is over 50 years old. What the hell has he been using his entire life? Why would he even have to jump through all those hoops in Hawaii just to get a certified copy of his own birth certificate? How did he get a drivers or marriage license? Anyone with the intelligence of a Limbaugh or oreilly who thinks the BC is real has obviously been ordered not to go there.

My recollection is vague on this but it seems to me his mother Stanley Ann Dunham was working in that part of the world with an agency that studied indigenous people common to that area.

Obama confessed to this trip two weeks after his passport was tampered with.

Sure, just two weeks later and he spills news of this trip as if, ooooh, I dunno, like, uh, maybe he or his handlers are scared poopless that someone who had a peek might spill the beans first. We only have his word that it was merely a few days' visit with a college buddy. There's been rumors the visit was several months long. Then a murder that got shoved under the rug far too quickly. Just another in a long line of coincidences with this clown.

Stanley’s passport records were “destroyed”

Too bad because they would have cleared the potus of any suspicion he was born abroad or held non-US citizenship or another name as late as 1981....

“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.”

You’d think that Pam Gellar would have done her homework. Harris was not a “Lt.”, he was named Leiutenant by his crazy parents. He was not a “key witness” in the Obama passport breach, he was a witness in another, unrelated case. The only connection that exists between the two cases is that they were mentioned in the same article by the Washington Post.

During the investigation into the passport breach, The Washington Times reported that a key witness in passport fraud case was fatally shot in front of a Washington, DC, church.  The report said Lt. Quarles Harris Jr., 24, who had been cooperating with federal investigators in a passport case, was found late slumped dead inside a car.  The reports said that Lt. Harris' death remains unsolved, and mysteriously, unreported until one year later, when the blogosphere discovered the murder, and conflated Harris' murder with the passport breach.

"Lt." Quarles Harris was a petty street punk con-artist.  His name was "Leiutenant" (note spelling), he was not a lieutenant in anything.  He was arrested in the possession of many phony credit cards that he had acquired via an identity theft scheme which involved stealing personal information from passport applications.

Leiutenant Harris was in court for that case three days before his murder.  "He felt like he was going to do jail time. He was willing to do jail time," said his mother.

Police had stopped her son and found 20 credit cards and eight completed passport applications.  According to court documents, Leiutenant Harris told police he and someone inside the State Department were taking information off passport applications, which they used to get fraudulent credit cards.  Another conspirator, inside the Postal Service, intercepted the cards before they could get to the actual people.

There IS no connection between "Lt." Quarles Harris and the scrubbing of Obama's passport files.

L. Quarell Harris's (LQH) Murder Revisited Ping...............

Thank you, Flotsam_Jetsome.

An article in the Washington times was written on Saturday, April 19, 2008. First paragraph indicated LQH was murdered on 04/18/08.

A key witness in a federal probe into passport information stolen from the State Department was fatally shot in front of a District church, the Metropolitan Police Department said yesterday.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/apr/19/key-witness-in-passport-fraud-case-fatally-shot/

From the American Thinker's article:

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 Jake Tapper 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."

http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/07/obamas_passport_breach_unanswered_questions_and_an_unsolved_murder.html Why, you ask, Jake? Because looking at the dates hilghted above, 0b0z0 didn't know if his thugs would be able to silence LQH 10 days later on 04/18/08. That's why!

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.

LQH must have found out something about 0b0z0 being a Naturalized citizen OR simply "Country of Birth: Kenya" on his American passport!

You can read the next paragraph quoting the Indian counterterrorism expert Bahukutumbi Raman asked pointed questions about this trip.

One educated guess, LQH could have been a Clinton operative. He "checked" McCain's, Hillary's and 0b0z0's passport files to mask the real prize, the latter.

This also helps to explain what I posted a couple of days ago about the mysterious 6-hour meeting between 0b0z0 and Hillary, where I guessed that they traded threats ending with 0b0z0 prevailing...maybe after reminding Hillary of what happened to her operative, LQH, 0b0z0 won the day. This may add specificity to my post.

Here is the pertinent paragraph that I posted:

"Some years ago, I posted my SPECULATION that Hillary was threatened in that mysterious 6-hour meeting with 0b0z0 during the '08 primary. Most likely 0b0z0’s counter-threat was in answer to the Clintons' own threat of disqualifying 0b0z0. I believe it was 0b0z0's counter-threat of Black rioting and voting against her for McCain, which meant that the Republicans would be handed the WH. I'm sure there was another threat of using the Chicago formidable Machine against the Clintons less formidable Arkansas Machine, to what extent, God only knows."

Unless “the person inside the State department” who was giving him access to passport information to steal, was also involved in letting other peoplw have unauthorized access to passport records.

As I recall the female State Department head in charge of passport section was named as involved or responsible for breach of passport files then simply transferred ot another posiion

The breach was by contract employees of a “security firm” owned by John Brennan - who is currently obama’s natl security advisor and supposedly a former black ops guy -

John Brennan, islamist, who was skiing and stayed skiing whan the underpants bomber “incident” occurred seems so stupid and arrogant one wonders how in the heck he has any creds in the intel business and got to and stays at obama’s elbow ....

maybe he is the kind of “useful” operative who facilitates gutter slime stuff that men of principle wouldnt stoop to do, like purging records that would disqualify a poser from usurping the uS Constitution

You're exactly right about spilling the beans. Only 0b0z0's mentioning it was three days AFTER the passport files' incident, not two weeks.

See dates documented in my post below, #27...I pinged you to it already.

Quarles was accessing passports to steal information and employees of John Brennan’s “security firm” were accessing passport records to... copy, alter or destroy them

The common contact between a hapless thief and a professional team of operatives might have been who in State Department they both got to that allowed it and knew it was going on and got paid to let it happen

Now Quarles is dead and John Brennan is obama’s national security advisor

Are any FReepers keeping track of how many people have been murdered who have been investigating the Sealed Obama Documents?

What is Obama hiding?

I didn't say that there was a connection between 0b0z0 and LQH. On the contrary, I said that perhaps LQH was a Clinton operative.

So, When the Washington post issues a clarification, should we take that at face value? Could it be that they were "advised" to retract or "clarify?"

Why would 0b0z0 mention the trip to Pakistan 3 days after the passport files' breach? He must have been forced to do so because NOBODY knew about it then. I hardly believe that 0b0z0 and the Chicago machine will volunteer any "damaging or controversial" info unless they absolutely have to in self-defense and damage control.

“The common contact between a hapless thief and a professional team of operatives might have been who in State Department they both got to that allowed it and knew it was going on and got paid to let it happen”

Key words there: “might have been”. In other words, it’s pure, baseless speculation. There is no evidence for any such connection.

In fact, simple logic tells us that it’s very unlikely that such a connection existed. The Brennan employees had access to the passport database themselves, because his company had a contract with the State Dept to process passport applications. Harris, on the other hand, alleged that he had an accomplice in the State Department itself. Since Brennan’s employees had direct access to the passport records themselves, they wouldn’t have had any need to seek out Harris’ alleged accomplice. We have no reason to think they would have even known about Harris’ accomplice in the first place. So, the only reason to assume a connection between them, is if you WANT to find a connection, which is not a good reason at all, if you want to find out the truth of a matter.

“On the contrary, I said that perhaps LQH was a Clinton operative.”

Well, there’s no evidence for that either, so why would you assume it?

“So, When the Washington post issues a clarification, should we take that at face value?”

Sure, unless there is some good reason to suspect that it’s not a truthful clarification.

“Could it be that they were “advised” to retract or “clarify?””

Anything “could” be, but speculating about that when there is nor a hint of evidence is not just fruitless, it’s counterproductive.

“Why would 0b0z0 mention the trip to Pakistan 3 days after the passport files’ breach? He must have been forced to do so because NOBODY knew about it then.”

That’s valid speculation, but there’s no need to try to pull in LQH to make sense of that scenario. LQH just makes the story more dramatic, since once he is in the mix, now you have intrigue, murder, and hints of a cover-up. That’s probably why the Washington Post reporter conflated the two cases in the first place, to spice up his article.

Brennan's employees engaged in illegal activity by improperly accessed passport data they were not authorized to access

Plenty of stories published when it happened in 2008

The head of State Department passport section Ann Barret was named in the investigation of unauthorized access and was transferred

Maybe Quarles “unauthorized access” during same time period was a mere.... co inky dink. However he had been named as a cooperating witness in federal investigation of unauthorized passport data access ..... his death may or may not have been a mere co inky dink. It is still unsolved

Have you noticed any increase in either missinformation or repetition of old unrelated information when NEW damning info, like the British archive, the Posse report, and the material at the Boston library are released?

SOP. The people engaged in this stuff are masters at disinformation.

““On the contrary, I said that perhaps LQH was a Clinton operative.”

“Well, there’s no evidence for that either, so why would you assume it?”

I said: “One educated guess,........” Am I not allowed to guess?

“So, When the Washington post issues a clarification, should we take that at face value?”

“Sure, unless there is some good reason to suspect that it’s not a truthful clarification.”

You’re entitled to your opinion. Did you think that protecting 0b0z0 would be a good reason?

“Could it be that they were “advised” to retract or “clarify?””

“Anything “could” be, but speculating about that when there is nor a hint of evidence is not just fruitless, it’s counterproductive.”

Wow! “COULD” you “possibly” be wrong? Yet, you allowed me a “ conditional speculation” below:

“That’s valid speculation, but there’s no need to try to pull in LQH to make sense of that scenario.”

It looks to me that we’ll have to agree to disagree.

I’ll leave it at that.

That’s cute, but why shouldn’t we think it was a coincidence? Is there a single shred of evidence that it was not a coincidence? Without that evidence, then yes it is a coincidence, and all the baseless speculation in the world cannot make it into anything more than a coincidence.

“However he had been named as a cooperating witness in federal investigation of unauthorized passport data access ..... his death may or may not have been a mere co inky dink.”

Yeah, he was cooperating in an investigation... of himself and his own accomplices. That’s not unusual for criminals who get caught. Sure, it was a “federal investigation”, because he committed a federal crime. This wasn’t an investigation into the Brennan case, no matter how dramatic one makes it sound. There is still no evidence to connect Harris and Brennan, or Obama and Harris, or Clinton and Harris, etc. All we have is two unrelated cases that have been conflated by the media and countless speculators after the fact.

From the American Thinker's article:

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 Jake Tapper 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."

Our suck up press - especially the New York Times and Washington Post are so 'absent'...

If he was a "Junior" then his grandparents started it by naming his father "Leiutenant."

I always believed that the MSM absence, ignorance and laziness are NOT the true description. They KNOW exactly what they're doing by deliberately not covering "certain" news and/or playing dumb.

Case in point, the MSM was very active, creating lies, belligerently asking questions and sending there people to camp around their targets homes and where ever their targets went. CHILDREN weren't spared the intense MSM investigation either!

Examples: Bush and Sarah Palin.

Just a reminder, the MSM was caught red-handed in the "JournOlists" private website scandal...no, we shouldn't cover that...we can't allow this...just call him (Fred Barnes of FOX, IIRC) a racist to put him on the defensive!...
