There is a reason that the announcement of nominees were made at one press conference and not separately.
Not sure if any one else saw the press conference today or has paid attention to the coverage of the corporate media but they want you to think that Chuck Hagel is the issue. Hell John Brennan couldn't be he wasn't even there he sent a flunky to accept his it couldn't be controversial. After all he has bi-partisan support what could go wrong?
Well if you ignore the fact that he loves torture and is all about killing children with robots he's a perfect pick for this administration. Oh wait I got that wrong those are the qualities that qualify him to work in this administration, sorry for the confusion.
The Associated Press is reporting Monday morning that Obama's top counterterrorism advisor, John Brennan—who has also been Obama's right hand man when it comes to governing the administration's program of extrajudicial assassinations known as the 'kill list'—will now be nominated to head the CIA
But hey he's a good guy why else would The President nominate him? I mean just listen to how much he cares...
President Obama’s nomination Monday of John Brennan, the architect of his drone war, to head the CIA suggests the deadly but controversial counterterrorism approach will not just continue but perhaps even expand.
Mr. Brennan, a former CIA officer who has served as Mr. Obama’s counterterrorism adviser for four years, has overseen a broad expansion
of the use of drones to carry out targeted killings in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia.
In fact, it was Brennan who first publicly acknowledged the Obama administration’s drone war, calling the strikes “legal, ethical, and wise” as a means of deterring terrorist attacks.
I would scream squirrel but at this point I think all I need to say
