White House is lying or clueless

The scandals at the White House in the last few days and the lack of knowing what was going on does not wash ("IRS head forced to go," May 16).

The IRS in Ohio targets conservative groups, but the interim head of the IRS located in Washington gets fired. Why doesn't the person in charge of the Ohio office get fired? Could it be she will spill the beans on who directed her to do this?

The Attorney General's office subpoenas phone records of the Associated Press, but does Eric Holder get fired? The same Eric Holder who was at the helm during "Fast and Furious" who claimed to be clueless.

Then we have e-mails about changes to the Benghazi talking points, but who gets the blame for lying to the public? No one.

For the White House to say they didn't know about these events indicates they have no clue how to run an effective organization or they continue to falsify the truth.
