Reason #41 why John Brennan should be the next CIA Director. He’s already expert at cover-ups. Okay, make that not very expert at cover-ups.
Obama’s pick to head the CIA was involved in crafting controversial talking points about last year’s attack in Benghazi, Republicans said Tuesday after viewing intelligence documents.
Lawmakers had vowed to block John Brennan’s nomination unless they got to see internal communications about how to describe the attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. Several said the email chain of several pages, which they’d been seeking for months, doesn’t change how they plan to vote either way.
“Brennan was involved,” Senate Intelligence Committee Vice-Chairman Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) said after the briefing. “It’s pretty obvious what happened.”
So Brennan isn’t actually any good at cover-ups. So maybe he isn’t qualified to be CIA Director after all. Good thing no one actually died in Benghazi or this would be a really serious issue.
The Senate intelligence committee on Wednesday postponed until next week a vote on the confirmation of White House aide John Brennan to be CIA director, dashing hopes of Democratic leaders who had hoped to have a vote on Thursday.
I’ll give you a confirmation vote tomorrow for some Benghazi talking points next Tuesday.
