Heard a good conspiracy theory lately? Try this one! John Owen Brennan. Do you know who he is? Well, Barack Obama appointed him Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), succeeding General David Petraeus, who fell out of favor with the Administration over his conduct of the war in Afghanistan (He wanted to win!).

Brennan spent 25 years with the CIA, serving the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations. In 1999 he was appointed chief of staff to George Tenet, then Director of the CIA, was later named deputy executive director, and was credited with having originated the now discredited terrorism color alerts. During Christmas 2003, Brennan issued an "Orange Terror Alert," which didn't do much to encourage holiday spending, thus ending his CIA career. Upon leaving government service, Brennan became the CEO of The Analysis Corporation. (Remember that name!)

Now fast forward to the year 2006. A northern Virginia firm, Stanley, Inc., was awarded a $164 million contract to print new U.S. passports. In 2008, two employees of Stanley, Inc., along with a third individual employed by The Analysis Corporation, broke into the US Passport Office on three separate occasions and "improperly accessed" the passport records of presidential hopefuls, Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton and John Sidney McCain, III.  It is important to note that the CEO of The Analysis Corporation at the time of the passport office break-in was the same John O. Brennan.

The accepted and unchallenged motive for the breach was that the perpetrators were looking for passport and biological data on all three presidential candidates in some sort of "exploratory" mission. However, it is now believed that the searches of the Clinton and McCain files were a cover-up, and that their real quest was for files that could prove embarrassing to candidate Obama; his personal and diplomatic passports, his real birth certificate, his passports from Indonesia, his college transcripts showing a "foreign" student visa, plus all the other oddities that have been discussed, but never produced or proven. The three break-in operatives were summarily fired from their jobs and disappeared into the night before they could be interviewed by investigators working on the case.

What took place next, however, is a bit more reminiscent of the days of the Clinton administration. It was reported that an employee within the U.S. State Department shared the passport information with a man identified as a Lieutenant Quarles Harris Jr.
A month later, the body of Lt. Harris, 24, was found slumped dead inside what was only identified as "blue car" in front of the Judah House Praise Baptist Church in the northeast section of the District of Columbia.

Emergency medics pronounced him dead at the scene. City police said they did not know whether his death was a result of his cooperation with federal investigators, or a drug deal gone bad. His mother said that she suspected the former, but, as usual, a State Department spokeswoman declined to comment, saying only, "The investigation into the passport fraud is ongoing."

Before he was murdered, Lt. Harris told federal investigators that he received "passport information from a co-conspirator who worked for the U.S. Department of State." What became of the "co-conspirator"? Why wasn't he/she brought to trial? Who knows?

"So what?" you may say. Is this significant, or just a coincidence? I have no idea. That's why I call it a conspiracy theory. All we do know is that after a thirteen-hour filibuster by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and after receiving the most "NO" votes of any previous candidate ever nominated for the position of CIA Director, John Owen Brennan, CEO of the firm that broke into the US Passport Office, and probable recipient of information that could declare Barack H. Obama ineligible to hold the office of the president of the United States, has suddenly been skyrocketed to a position of immense power.
