Who runs the NSA?

About a month ago, the NSA got caught spying on foreign leaders. In response, the Obama administration has publicly stated that they weren’t aware of the wiretaps being conducted. This almost scares me more than if the wiretaps had been conducted under the orders of Obama because it raises the question– who the hell is in charge of the NSA? Being an executive agency, you’d assume it’s the Obama Administration, but apparently not. Either the administration has lied to the public and foreign nations, or the wiretaps were conducted under the orders of somebody else. Either way, figuring out exactly what happened and why it happened is a good idea, considering the downward spiral that an event like this could send international relations into.
