The U.S. State Department apologized on Friday after admitting some of its workers had snooped into the passport files of presidential candidates Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John McCain.
The New York Times quotes Barack Obama as saying:
“One of the things that the American people count on in their interactions with any level of government is that if they have to disclose personal information, that is going to stay personal and stay private,” Mr. Obama said. “And when you have not just one, but a series of attempts to tap into people’s personal records, that’s a problem, not just for me, but for how our government is functioning.”
So the US government is unable to hold confidential files it has about three senators, one of whom is going to be the next president of USA. The obvious question is how citizens can possibly trust that the government can keep their files intact. Condi says she is staying on top of this and going to the bottom of it but is that enough?
