White House OKd spying on allies, U.S. intelligence officials say

NSA and other U.S. intelligence agency staff members are said to be angry at President Obama for denying knowledge of the spying.

WASHINGTON -- The White House and State Department signed off on surveillance targeting phone conversations of friendly foreign leaders, current and former U.S. intelligence officials said Monday, pushing back against assertions that President Obama and his aides were unaware of the high-level eavesdropping.

Professional staff members at the National Security Agency and other U.S. intelligence agencies are angry, these officials say, believing the president has cast them adrift as he tries to distance himself from the disclosures by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden that have strained ties with close allies.

Obama may not have been specifically briefed on NSA operations targeting a foreign leader's cellphone or email communications, one of the officials said. "But certainly the National Security Council and senior people across the intelligence community knew exactly what was going on, and to suggest otherwise is ridiculous."

If U.S. spying on key foreign leaders was news to the White House, current and former officials said, then White House officials have not been reading their briefing books.

He is the Liar-in-Chief and does not even deserve a decent salute.

What is being said is that current and former U.S. intelligence officials are tire of Obama throwing them under the bus to try make himself look good.

Correct, in which case Obama should be up in arms about who is withholding information from him.

Failing to deal with his own people is an indication of lack of leadership.

So we have him as being a failure as a leader or a liar.
If U.S. spying on key foreign leaders was news to the White House, current and former officials said, then White House officials have not been reading their briefing books.
That's their job. If Obama didn't approve of spying on foreign leaders, he should outraged. But he's not, he just wants it to go away.

He only displays outrage at the GOP and the American people.

But hey, stay in your own little Obama-can-do-no-wrong world. That's your choice.
