Obamacare and NSA spying: What did Obama know, and when did he find out?

(CNN) - As accusations over Obamacare and U.S. spying spiral into political controversies at home and abroad, there are two key questions bubbling beneath the surface: What did President Obama know, and when did he find out?

U.S. officials have said that the President didn't know about problems with the website for the health care policy he championed and that it wasn't until recently that he learned about a National Security Agency operation that wiretapped German Chancellor Angela Merkel's phone.

    We expect the heads of the hundreds of government departments and agencies to be competent professionals. The President should not have to look over their shoulders.
