I heard a wild-eyed rumor from a source I'm highly skeptical of that there are "27 layers of security above the president". I was wondering if there was any truth to that. If anything, I'm sure it's an exaggeration.
1. Is there any clearance that President Obama does not have?
2. if so what are they and what are they called?
3. Couldn't president Obama ask about anything and if he does not get an answer he can just replace the head of the CIA or any department and put someone who would give him the answers?edit on 19-7-2012 by CountDrac because: (no reason given)

27 levels? One thing I do know is some of the Space Shuttle crews were awarded medals by the Secret Service. The only way they can access them is to go to the Pentagon and down into a vault. There they can look at them and wear them, they cannot take a picture of the medal nor remove them from the vault but are free to go thru this procedure whenever they want to.
