U.S. passport and visa system down worldwide

We are getting updates from the U.S. Department of State and from other sources that the global database used by the Department of State to process U.S. visa applications and passports has crashed, resulting in delays for millions of people around the world waiting for travel documents.  The problems with the Consular Consolidated Database have resulted in "significant performance issues, including outages" in the processing of applications for passports, visas and reports of Americans born abroad since Saturday.  State Department spokesman Marie Harf said that the crash has resulted in an "extensive backlog" of applications.
