Obama's Consultant, CEO of Passport Gate

CNN reports that the latest employee to breach passport security works for a company whose CEO consults for Obama. Interesting that this employee is the only one of the three not to have been fired. Just when the campaign desperately needed to change the subject from Pastor Wright.

Coincidence? Most likely, but curious non the less.

The CEO of a company whose employee is accused of improperly looking at the passport files of presidential candidates is a consultant to the Barack Obama campaign, a source said Saturday.

John O. Brennan, president and CEO of the Analysis Corp., advises the Illinois Democrat on foreign policy and intelligence issues, the source said.

Brennan briefed the media on behalf of the campaign this month.

The executive is a former senior CIA official and former interim director of the National Counterterrorism Center.

He contributed $2,300 to the Obama campaign in January.

When asked about the contribution, a State Department official told CNN's Zain Verjee, "We ethically awarded contracts. Political affiliation is not one of the factors that we check."
