Matt Flynn has some good thoughts on Obama’s Passport breach here and here. He makes the great point that you can’t prevent people from using authorized access for invalid purposes. You can catch them after the fact, which should act as a deterrent, but you can’t actually prevent it.
This Passport controversy is something that should be remembered when we start to talk about nationalized health care. If you think Passport information is tempting to the curious government worker, what about famous people’s health care records? Do we really want the federal government maintaining a nation-wide database of all of our health-care issues, just like they do our Passport related information?
