Not only is it stupid, especially during a presidential year, but it is unethical, immoral and a betrayal of trust.
The two state department employees snooping into Obama's passport records should have been fired.
The idea that the Bush administration was plotting with these state department officials for some incendiary political purpose is ridiculous.
Update: The air just went out of Obama's balloon on this. Both Clinton's and McCain's passports were also breached.
So much for that whole incendiary political purpose stuff, huh?
