UPDATE 4/21:

Last night, MSNBC noted a Clinton connection to the story that Barack Obama's passport had been breached. The network reported that Maura Harty, the State Department official in charge of the Bureau Of Consular Affairs during the first two breaches of Obama's passport, had served as an ambassador under Bill Clinton.

Today, the State Department confirmed Hillary Clinton and John McCain's passport files had also been breached.

"Harty was a Consular Affairs Chief until the end of last month when she retired from foreign service work. Before her stint as the Assistant Secretary of State of Consular Affairs, Harty was an Ambassador to Paraguay under President Bill Clinton," MSNBC reported.

Harty began her State Department career in 1981. She worked for the Reagan, Bush Sr, Clinton, and Bush administrations until she resigned February, 29. Here full State Department bio can be found here.
