The Guardian last week reported that the US had spied on 35 world leaders, including Angela Merkel.
NSA and intelligence officials say the White House signed off on surveillance targeting friendly world leaders.
The LA Times reported:

MSNBC: Numerous Examples Of Obama Appearing To Be Left In The Dark
Sure but I have some swampland out in the Everglades that I swear is dry land … Wanna buy? Honest I wouldn’t lie to you…
Monday night on her Fox News program, Megyn Kelly played a clip of President Obama going beyond the now-infamous “If you like your plan, you can keep you plan” promise. Earlier Monday, as Noel Sheppard at NewsBusters noted, Lisa Myers and Hannah Rappleye at NBC News revealed that the Obama administration knew three years ago that “more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.”
At the 0:59 mark of the video which follows (HT Mediaite), viewers will see Kelly introduce and then replay Obama’s February 2010 promise that “any insurance you have will be grandfathered in,” even if it’s an “Acme Insurance, just a high deductible catastrophic plan”:
The head of the agency running the troubled federal government health insurance website apologized for the website’s problems Tuesday , promising once again that they would be fixed.
Members of the House Ways and Means Committee immediately lit into Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services administrator Marilyn Tavenner, demanding to know why Americans should trust that the troubled website, or even the entire health care law, will ever work.
Of course we already knew Obama didn’t know nothing.
The list is growing every week: The IRS scandal, the deteriorating security situation in Libya, spying on German Chancellor Angela Merkel, spying on journalists and the Obamacare mess. Those are just a few of the things we have been told at one time or another that President Obama he didn’t know about before learning about them in the media. Note to media: You have a critical job in briefing the president, so err on side of over-inclusion.
Then there are the things he had wrong or knew better but said anyway: There is a fatwa in Iran against nuclear weapons, “You will get to keep your health-care plan,” the Benghazi attack was related to an anti- Muslim video, and no predecessor had been compelled to negotiate a budget deal in the context of a potential government shutdown.
This prompts several questions: Who is running the government? Why is the president content not to know so many things? At this point one has to conclude he is intentionally ignorant. If he really wanted to be in the loop, people who didn’t inform him would be fired and the pace of “I didn’t know” excuses would slow. Instead it’s ticked up. Perhaps he refuses to hear bad news. Maybe his second-term team is hopelessly incompetent. Whatever the reason, Obama’s ignorance is no longer (if it ever had been) a valid excuse. His continual cluelessness is an indictment now of his administration’s collapse.
How the lies are stacking up… “Mind-boggling attempts at blame-shifting.”
