Concerned about presidential command


I have noticed that our president has said that he was unaware of the following events until he hears about them on the news: Fast and Furious, IRS targeting of conservative groups, Benghazi and the Obamacare website problems. That is somewhat hard for me to believe because people high up in his administration certainly were aware, if not directing the operations. If one takes him at his word then that may be even more worrisome as it would seem to indicate that he has delegated to the degree that he is no longer in the command structure.
