National Security Agency (NSA) Covertly Inspects Anyone's Private Life

Secretly (except from himself) taped six days after the break-in, the President asked: "Who was the a**hole who ordered it?"  Some take this to mean he didn't know about the break-in in advance, others think it means he was aware that he was taping himself and needed to sound innocent.  Either way, he ordered a cover-up that was effective for a time.
