I would have more respect for this administration if they at least came out and just said, "Tough sh!t! We did it, I'm a bad-ass. Deal with it."

But no.

Obama didn't do anything.
Obama doesn't know anything.

The so-called leader of the free world and current boss of a police-state can't be seen as being responsible or accountable.

The buck stops here. Remember that?

He may actually not. Or he may know without "knowing" if you catch my drift.

It's about plausible deniability.

Think about it. You are talking about a bunch of nations who, while they may be allies, are also looking out for their own best interests first. To that extent, I expect we all spy on one another, just in case. However, I suspect that while all of the world's leaders technically know about their high level intel operations, they do not know the details until those details become a need to know thing because something like this might happen, and if it does, then that leader needs to be able to honestly say, no, I did not know about the leader of nation A being spied on because he didn't, not in any great detail.

It's about being able to preserve that veneer of trust while still being able to verify.

Petition the whitehouse to prosecute the NSA Director!

He lied to congress under oath, and should be in prison!

During a House Intelligence Committee hearing, National Intelligence Director James Clapper said that the National Security Agency and the CIA cannot tap into any leader’s private communications without permission from the White House.
