Obama Says He is More Involved in Intelligence Operations Relating to Threats Than Any President

President Barack Obama Thursday denied that his apparent lack of awareness that the U.S. was snooping on allied heads of state suggests that he hasn't been delving deeply enough into intelligence matters.

"I can guarantee you that I've been more deeply involved in our intelligence operations on a whole set of areas where there are real threats against us than just about any president, well...as much as any president. When I am presented intelligence, particularly if it pertains to allies like Germany, I'm not poking and probing about where we get certain information," Obama said in an interview with NBC News.
