SHIELD was told to back off in IM3? When? Where?
They weren't but Rhodey made it clear the Mandarin thing was being handled strictly by the US Military. He didn't even want Stark involved. Stark only got involved when it became personal with Happy put in a coma.

And when Stark and Rhodey tried to inform the authorities about the President's capture, the VP was shown to be corrupt (possibly Hydra?). Plus the President's capture and the finale all happened within a few hours.
