Obama on damage control after three major controversies plague his administration

Three major controversies threatening the White House - and the response from the Obama administration:

Obama: "I can assure you that I certainly did not know anything about the IG report before the IG report had been leaked through press."

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney: "I would ask the CIA"

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder: I was not the person who was involved in that decision.

So where exactly does the buck stop?

Who knew that the IRS was targeting conservative groups seeking tax exempt status?

Who is really responsible for revising the talking points on Benghazi that led the public to believe something that turned out not to be true? And why did the Department of Justice secretly obtain Associated Press phone records?

OutFront tonight: Jennifer Palmieri, White House Director of Communications.

    And why are we still in Iraq and Afghanistan? And why is Gitmo still open for business?
