Senate Panel Approves Brennan for CIA

Drones, shmones. The Senate Intelligence Committee voted in John Brennan as the next director of the CIA on Tuesday afternoon. Currently President Obama's counterterrorism adviser, Brennan has been a controversial figure regarding the United States' use of drone strikes. But the White House agreed to supply the committee with classified memos detailing legal rationale for the attacks ahead of the vote. Brennan still has to pass a vote by the full Senate before officially taking the position. Just watch yourself around biographers, sir.
