About That Passport Again


Copyright wtpotus 2012

Our definitive review of the passport scandal:

More recent research on CGI/Stanley here:


Well folks, here we are again. Back to that little passport situation. Let’s look once more. We will recall first that break in and the name Harris. Things have changed a bit in a certain corporate structure since we first heard of him.



Next, let’s look at more.


Now if you notice, Stanley Inc. was acquired by CGI Group in 2010. There is also a note that Stanley acquired Oberon Associates, also a defense contractor in June 2008. They also acquired Techrizon LLC out of Lawton, Oklahoma in April 2007.  Stanley’s biggest customers ? They are our Army, Marines, Navy, DOS,  and Homeland Security. Note that wiki includes the fact that it operates facilities to produce US passports.

Now we include the corporate structure of CGI Group who’s key people are Serge Godin and Michael E. Roach. Note the name George Schindler also. Serge Godin founded CGI in 1976 in Montreal, Canada. In May 2010 they announced the acquisition of Stanley for 10.07 B. CGI has markets in the following areas. Let’s look at those.

Banking, Credit Unions, Distribution, Government, Health Care, Insurance, Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Retail, Telecommunications, Utilities, Wealth managment and Financial Services. They sell software to all of them.

Finally, note the term in there called “Cloud Computing”


That term I read keeps Bill Gates up at night….What say you Stanley ?

More on this story here too;


Boy that name Stanley gets around no ? Let’s all look into all of this further in comments.

  1. The Stanley, Inc link is no longer. So, googled Stanley, Inc and was taken to Wiki where the page exists… and it is the same link. I tried, also, copy and pasting URL of your posted link into URL line and it would not go either. Let’s see how long this one works from here.


  2. To administrators. I have the Stanley info and the link works to them for me, but now I cannot get it to pull up the info here. I am not sure why it is not linking now. If someone can get it to work properly it sure would be helpful. TU.

    • It won’t be working Renee. Someone here has struck a chord and someone else is working full speed to stop something. There is a weakness in our system and may need to go to some sort of roundabout way to communicate so instead of being only half-step ahead we can be at least four or five ahead.

  3. Strange Hootie no ?

    • Strange. Can get to from google search page but to then copy the URL in here won’t work — as in immediately. Let’s try this….. did something different http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanley, Inc.

      • Notice how the “, Inc” got left off when I hand typed in the link? It took me to the old page which is mentioned in the history “18:13, 12 November 2009‎ Dovid (talk | contribs)‎ m . . (6,878 bytes) (0)‎ . . (moved Stanley (company) to Stanley, Inc. over redirect: This is a better title for the page. The old name is more awkward and less accurate, and could easily be interpreted as refering to several other companies with similar names. My intention is) (undo) “

  4. Hootie, will you please cut and paste the Stanley info while it is still there ?

    • I have screen shots of the Stanley,Inc because for some strange reason I could not copy and paste it. Would not take. How do I put them up here from my computer?

    Passport issues

    There were three separate incidents involving Barack Obama’s State Department passport file in 2008. Although these occurred over a three-month span, Obama was notified only on March 20, as upper levels of the State Department themselves first became aware of the breaches.[265] On March 21, 2008, the United States Department of State revealed that Obama’s passport file was improperly accessed three times in 2008. Three contract employees are accused in the wrongdoing. One, who works for The Analysis Corporation (TAC), accessed Obama and McCain’s records and was disciplined. The two other workers, who worked for Stanley, Inc.., each accessed Obama’s file on separate occasions and were fired. An unauthorized access of Hillary Clinton’s file was also made in mid-2007, but was considered a training error and unrelated to the other instances.[266] John O. Brennan, president and CEO of Analysis, is a consultant to the Barack Obama campaign and contributed $2,300 to the Obama campaign in January 2008. Brennan is a former senior CIA official and former interim director of the National Counterterrorism Center.[267] The chairman of Stanley Inc., Philip Nolan, is a Clinton supporter and contributor;[268] his company has had contracts with the United States Department of State since 1992 and was recently awarded a $570 million contract to continue providing support for passport processing. The State Department is focusing an internal inquiry on the TAC employee, but plans to question all three of the contractors who accessed the candidates’ files.[269]

  6. Anyone a contributor at w.ki? As in able to upload files from there?

  7. Try this:

    I’m posting this again. I got this link to work, but I went to it from a different link. I wonder if it will work from here?

    • Nope……the link I posted above does not work either. Below is the informaiton on the link. Delete whatever you want.

      Stanley, Inc. (NYSE:SXE), acquired by CGI Group in 2010, is an information technology company based in Arlington, Virginia. Founded in 1966, it operated as a small, entrepreneurial consulting company.

      Stanley made its initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange in October 2006, selling 6.3 million shares for $13.00/share, raising $81.9 million. A majority of stocks are owned by officers, directors and employees (the latter through an employee stock ownership plan).

      The company’s largest customer is the U.S. Army. It also holds contracts with the U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Navy, Department of State, and Department of Homeland Security. It operates facilities for the production of United States passports[1][2] and for mailroom work and data entry for applications for U.S. visa and citizenship.

      [edit] Union Matter

      The company controversially reduced wages when it took over the management of two facilities in St. Albans, Vermont, and Laguna Niguel, California in December 2007 which process immigration documents.[3] The United Electrical workers union (UE) became involved in an effort to create a union to protect low paid employees who process immigration records. As it was about to assume control, Stanley announced that it would be changing job classifications at the facilities, resulting in a pay decrease of about 12 percent which prompted Sen. Bernie Sanders from Vermont to call on the Labor Department to investigate what he charged was a violation of the Service Contract Act.

      A July 2007 report by the Government Accountability Office on passport and visa security outlines the potential dangers of outsourcing passport functions to contractors like Stanley Inc.[4]

      [edit] Department of State Investigation

      In March 2008, the U.S. Department of State, which is responsible for issuing U.S. passports, stated that two employees of a Stanley Associates subcontractor had been fired for improperly accessing the passport application file of (then) president elect Barack Obama.[5] The company published a press release[6] on March 21, 2008. In each case, Stanley took immediate disciplinary action and employees were terminated the day the unauthorized search occurred. Stanley also stated its general policy and practice to cooperate fully with any potential Government investigation.

      Additional information on the breach of passport information has yet to be disclosed to the public.[7][8]

      [edit] Corporate Mergers

      On June 10, 2008, Stanley announced that it was acquiring Oberon Associates, a fellow defense contractor also based out of Virginia.[9] In April 2007, Stanley acquired Lawton, Okla.-based Techrizon LLC, a provider of software, training, simulation and information security solutions.

      On May 7, 2010, CGI Group Inc., a leading provider of information technology and business processing services, announced that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement to acquire Stanley. The merger was finalized in August 2010.

      [edit] Corporate Recognition

      Washington Technology listed Stanley at the 50th position in its 2007 list of the top 100 U.S. federal government prime contractors.[10] In the 2008 listing, Stanley rose to the 48th position.[11] In 2009, Stanley rose to the 45th position.[12]

      Fortune Magazine included Stanley in its 2007,[13] 2008,[14] and 2009[15] lists of the “100 Best Companies to Work For”. The methodology that Fortune Magazine follows in determining the companies listed in the ranking includes an independent survey of a random sampling of company employees.

      Stanley was ranked in the 10th position in the large companies category on the 2009 Best Places to Work in Oklahoma.[16]

      The 2009 Washington Business Journal Best Places to Work ranked Stanley in the 17th position in the large companies category.[17]

      CGI TO ACQUIRE STANLEY U.S. expansion consistent with strategic priorities

      • Thank you Kathy, We will leave the info just as is. No editing. I like the info raw and unedited. That way, I do not touch the information or take anything out.

    • I fixed the link in Kathy’s comment. It must have something to do with the period at the end of the link. If anybody notices links they put in comments that are now missing, I did it. I was trying to figure out how to fix the link so it would work. The only way I could come up with was to put that sentence there (Try this:) and then add the link in html (which we can do as administrators when we edit a comment). So this appears to work now. This would be a good question for Gordo, if he knows html. I don’t. But I know enough about other programming languages to deduce what’s the problem and my guess is it’s because that link ends with a period and because they also are trying to defeat some kind of Google stats by putting something called “no follow” on their links. Any html experts out there?

  9. Hootie, Kathy, I think the issue may be Philip Nolan. He is Chairman of Stanley Inc. (The original Stanley Smith was a Texas gumshoe) anyway, Nolan seems to go to the break in from the Stanley Inc, that had 2 employees that were involved. The other employee worked for Analysis (John Brennan’s) company. Now Stanley Inc/Nolan connect to a new project of id verification with eye, skin, fingertip etc…id. That company is in New Mexico and is called Lumidigm. I do not know if it all relates but seems so much on security. Wiki on Stanley said details had not been released to the public so, I do not know.

      IMPLICATIVE DISCOVERY: A government document found buried in the online reference section of a Boston Public Library archive bolsters a growing mountain of evidentiary data against Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be president. The document indicates that a consular officer issued a single certificate of statutory citizenship, within the time frame including August 4, 1961, to a child born to a U.S. citizen between July 1st and December 31st, 1961 in the Kenyan region of Africa. The record also reveals that the certificate was the only one issued for this specific type of arrival in the U.S. over a span of more than 18 months, among thousands from other parts of the world.

      By Dan Crosby of THE DAILY PEN

      NEW YORK, NY – A recently discovered rare immigration record found by researchers working on behalf of an ongoing investigation into the Constitutional eligibility of Barack Obama to hold the office of the U.S. presidency reveals that an American consular officer issued a single Certificate of Citizenship to only one passenger arriving in the U.S. from the Kenyan region of Africa between July and December of 1961.

      The record shows demographic and status classifications for a passenger who was explicitly recorded at the INS Arrival Inspection Station as an individual being born to a U.S. citizen parent arriving from the Kenyan region of Africa between July 1st and December 31st, 1961.

      This information and the dates of its documentation are disturbing given the rare nature of the issuance of certificates of citizenship for children who acquire their citizenship by birth to incoming U.S. citizens in this particular region of Africa.
