Obama knew nothing about it until he saw it in the news. This whole thing is just the rethuglicans trying to show how totally incompetent the Obama administration really is.

What a shock the White House is denying knowledge of another embarrassing mess. The Obamabots on the board have been blaming the Republicans but the White House is happy to just deny any knowledge. .

If this was true, and it isn't the Secretary of Homeland Security should be removed immediately. I bet her E mails are missing too.

Plausible Deniability

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Plausible deniability is a term coined by the CIA in the early 1960s to describe the withholding of information from senior officials in order to protect them from repercussions in the event that illegal or unpopular activities by the CIA became public knowledge.

Do you really think every decision an agency makes it cleared through the entire chain of command. If so, you need to come to terms with reality.

"the Obama administration to wrongly deny for weeks that 2,228 immigrants facing deportation had been released, according to the report Tuesday from the Homeland Security Department's inspector general."

Perhaps the White House didn't know before hand, but they certainly should have known soon after. But, no, theirs administration cares not a whit about the truth. They will lie at the drop of a hat. They will deny the truth even when it stares them in the face.

Now, also from this article:

"Data published by the government in May of this year revealed that the Homeland Security Department released 36,007 convicted criminal immigrants in 2013 who are facing deportation. That total includes those accounting for 193 homicide and 426 sexual assault convictions. The immigrants nearly all still face deportation and are required to check in with immigration authorities while their deportation cases are pending."

What does this mean? "Nearly all" convicted criminal immigrants still face deportation. Why not all of them? Why are they still here?
Oh, yes, I see that they required to check in with immigration authorities while they wait for their hearings. That is so reassuring. Criminal immigrants certainly will follow the rules. You can bet your life on that. Obama certainly did!

ohbama doesn't know Jack either. Surprising if ohbama takes credit for anything. He gives ALOT of lip service and tells everybody "not me" but actually it is ohbama, he is too stupid to even care.
This president has got to be the biggest Jackass in my lifetime. Always everybody elses fault and never his. Typical black. Go back to playing basketball and leave the real thinking to the ones who made America great, White people.

If it was not cleared through the White House it certainly is a decision that should have been made only at the highest levels. The White House is still responsible for the fact it happened even if Obama did not order it.

Is there ANYTHING that happens in Barry Obama's government that he actually knows about? Anything at all? Anyone know the answer to this? Anyone? Bueller?

Or is Obama just the caretaker at the White House who sweeps, changes the light bulbs and makes sure the pluming hasn't sprung a leak? Will he eventually take responsibility for SOMETHING? Maybe even something very small and unimportant?

Excellent point. In this administration NO decision is ever run through the chain of command. Hence the term leading from behind and/or plausible deniability?

Does Obama know he is President? He acts like a party planner.

That is the problem, we have no leaders. The country is running itself. Look at the lawlessness in our streets. Americans have to protect themselves in their homes in the cities. Chicago has expanded their police department, brought in extra police, and the FBI, and their streets are still unsafe.
