Just who is running our country? Benghazi: Hillary Clinton gave no clear-cut answers. Who gave the order to "stand down"? Fast and Furious: Whose idea and who gave the OK?

Targeting conservatives: Whose idea was this, and who gave the OK or turned a blind eye to the process? Lois Lerner, the head of the Internal Revenue Service, said she did nothing wrong and broke no laws, then she took the Fifth Amendment.

Whose idea was it to invade The Associated Press and Fox with wire taps, and who gave the OK?

Whose idea was it to invade the privacy of every American citizen who owns a telephone or uses the Internet, and who gave the OK?

All these programs started as a single thought in a single person's mind and were signed off by a single person.

Our elected president runs our country. Who decides which programs he should or should not know about?
