Regarding the new news that Obama doesn’t know a thing about anything we get these quotes or statements:
Gen Keith Alexander never discussed alleged operations involving Chancellor Angela Merkel, an NSA spokeswoman said.
“[General] Alexander did not discuss with President Obama in 2010 an alleged foreign intelligence operation involving German Chancellor Merkel, nor has he ever discussed alleged operations involving Chancellor Merkel,” NSA spokeswoman Vanee Vines said.
So you think they are falling for it hook, line and sinker, but then you get this:
The statement does not make it clear whether the president was informed of the bugging operation by other means.
Is the gig really up?
