US Senate Approves John Brennan to CIA Post

US Senate Approves John Brennan to CIA Post 07 Mar 2013 The US Senate has confirmed John Brennan as head of the CIA after the Obama administration bowed to demands from Republicans to clarify its drone strikes policy. The appointment of Mr Obama's chief counterterrorism advisor to the nation's top spy post had been delayed as lawmakers pressed the president for specific limits on his authority to order drone strikes against American citizens on US soil. The 63-34 vote moved forward only after reassurances were contained in a letter from Attorney General Eric Holder to Republican Senator Rand Paul, who made a 13-hour speech on Wednesday demanding an answer to the question.
