Surprise: Obama pleads ignorance on NSA surveillance

Obama Aides: He Didn't Know Extent of NSA Surveillance
"I think it was disturbing to most people, and I think he found it disturbing.”

President Obama doesn’t merely claim ignorance of the IRS’ targeting of politically conservative groups or the Department of Justice’s targeting of journalists: according to The New York Times, Obama was also ignorant of the extent of NSA surveillance.

According to the Times, “aides said Mr. Obama was surprised to learn after leaks by Edward J. Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor, just how far the surveillance had gone.” David Plouffe, Obama’s advisor, said, “Things seem to have grown at the NSA. I think it was disturbing to most people, and I think he found it disturbing.”

President Obama has repeatedly claimed ignorance on scandals plaguing his administration.

In October, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said Obama didn’t now about failures of Healthcare.gov. In May, Obama said he knew nothing about the IRS scandal. That same month, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Obama had no clue that the DOJ was targeting the Associated Press.

In November 2012, Obama said he knew nothing about the scandal surrounding then-CIA Director David Petraeus. Carney denied in June 2012 that Obama knew anything about the Fast and Furious scandal.

These guys use the NSA to spy on other politicians in Congress, as well as other nation's leaders.

Completely illegal as hell. Should be grounds for impeachment. Of course the top republicans in the house are all bought and paid for by the same corporate interests and they would NEVER draw up the papers for that.

It's unsurprising that the President don't know alot of things that happen in his Administration. The US government is, essentially, the biggest bureaucracy in the history of the world.

But that doesn't absolve him of responsibility. The buck does, in fact, stop there, and the leader of any organization is responsible for putting in place people beneath him who will manage their respective departments well.

I'm not surprised that a president doesn't know everything about everything. However, it is his duty to rapidly learn about new and relevant topics and at least present a confident face to the public. I don't really want my leader admitting that he doesn't know stuff. He should at least have folks under him briefing him and taking care of stuff.

edit: wow amnorix said almost the exact same thing as I

All of these assholes have been caught lying in just about everything that's gone on during the Obama regime. I mean it's unbelievable...it's right out in the public eye. It's like they're hiding all of this shit in plain view and nothing is being done about anything. No one is going to jail, there are no trials over anything. They just arrogantly sit up high on their thrones and say "yeah so what we did this, it was national security, move along".

Just because something is considered "national security" doesn't mean it's not illegal.

Throw all of these assholes in jail. Including everyone who's been caught lying with our treasury, IRS and the federal reserve And then that will at least get this country pointed in the correct direction.

But no one will touch these guys...it's sad.

Posting this link again, his claims of ignorance are bullshit.

Article is way too long to post here but gives a great recap of the timeline for the NSA programs and their approvals.

Hmm, what's worse, looking dumb or looking evil? I guess O'Bama would rather look dumb.

How exactly did he make Obama his bitch? The programs aren't going to stop. Nothing has changed about them. Snowden has accomplished zero as of this point.

While I agree that both parties seem unable to keep from stuffing themselves with surveillance data, I don't really agree that Snowden accomplished nothing.

I think that undoubtedly he accomplished many things, both positive and negative. He pulled the curtain back on a lot of programs that the public was not aware of. He exposed some things that damaged national security, but he also brought some things to light that needed to be brought to light.

Snowden isn't a hero, and he didn't embarrass Obama alone, although Obama's unwillingness to pursue any meaningful reform in domestic spying makes him as complicit as the people who started the programs.

If you have been paying attention, nothing that Snowden revealed was ground breaking.
