'Al-Quds' Brennan confirmed as CIA director

The Senate confirmed John 'al-Quds' Brennan as director of the CIA on Thursday afternoon. The vote was 63-34.
The Senate voted 63-34 in favor of Brennan, overcoming Republican Senator Rand Paul's attempt to slow the White House counter-terrorism advisor from becoming the next head of the CIA.

Paul, who spent nearly 13 hours speaking on the Senate floor on Wednesday, was irate about the reluctance of President Barack Obama's administration to declare that "targeted killings" of American citizens on US soil were unconstitutional.

Attorney General Eric Holder then clarified the administration's policy on Thursday and said that Obama would not use his authority to order a drone to kill an American on US soil who was "not engaged in combat."
With the man in charge of removing references to Islamic terrorism from all government manuals in charge of the CIA, what could go wrong?

Just remember that Mark Rubio voted yay for this nomination.

And, Shy Guy, Rand Paul was one of only 4 (R)s who voted yes for Hagel. I can't figure out what they are thinking. I want them out every day making the case, even if they have to make their own podcast and put it on itunes or youtube or something. You think they're getting going, and they just crumble. Even the ones who have been to visit Israel, etc. Ugh.
