John Brennan’s CIA Confirmation Hearing: Send in the Clowns

                                       

“Mr. Brennan, congratulations on your nomination. As you can see, it’s going to be lively.”
-Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein

Brennan’s CIA confirmation hearing yesterday:

Brennan delivered a confident and at times combative defense of his record and the administration’s decisions, and emerged from the session on course to be confirmed for the CIA job, perhaps as early as next week.

But Brennan, whose opening remarks were interrupted repeatedly by protesters in the audience, also expressed dismay with the way the administration’s actions have been perceived.

The previous administration never had problems with how its policy decisions were being (mis)perceived, did it? ;)

At least Medea Benjamin and her CodePink whackos are consistent, regardless of political party in power:

It was not as if Code Pink were trying very hard to hide.

As John Brennan prepared to begin his testimony before the Senate intelligence committee, the audience behind him included a number of women wearing pink clothes, marking them out as members of the high-profile anti-war activist group.

The man who desires to be the next CIA director had not even opened his mouth before the first interruption occurred and a Code Pink supporter was removed from the room. At least three more interruptions were to follow, with some Code Pink members even waving props as they hurled insults linking Brennan’s high-profile advocacy of the use of drones to strike suspected militants abroad.

The move prompted committee chair Dianne Feinstein to take the unusual step of halting the hearing, clearing the room and prohibiting Code Pink members from returning to the chamber. But Code Pink’s point had already been made. The drones controversy that has dogged Brennan ever since his name was put forward to be America’s top spy had followed him to the hallowed halls of the Capitol.

    Looking at the pics – most of these left wing whacko’s have a major ‘appearance’ problem — somewhere along in their lives they musta looked into a mirror – only to have it crack — and ever since have decided that life was just ‘so unfair’ — the mirror turned them into liberals — “Mirror Mirror on the wall — Who’s the most wonderful of all– can it be ME?

    “It’s a strange, strange world we live in — Master Jack!” — could be “It’s a sad, sad world we live in Master Jack!”

    Hopefully — linkie will workie –

    But — I am really left with (at least) two major questions:

    1) With all of the emphasis on security – to the point of practically – and I guess – actually – strip searches to the point of boby cavity probes in order to get on to transport or – into public buildings — >>> HOW THE ‘ELL DO THESE A-HOLES get into congressional hearings with all of their CRAP???

    2) Don’t any of these scum sucking SOB’s have job? — where in ‘ell do they get the time and the money to go to DC —- the District of Criminals/ Communists/ Corruptocrats/ —

    WHO – or WHAT is supporting these A-HOLES??? — and allowing them free access into the halls of congress????

    Most real people – especially the ones paying taxes – can’t afford a few days off just to put their feet up — let alone go on trips to DC

    OOPS – Sorry — I Guess: “What difference does it make???”
    enuff for now!

    Why protest the small fry? Why aren’t they protesting Obama at ever opportunity? After all Brennan just carries out the orders he’s given.

    Scan through those photos and see the wispy-haired woman holding the ”Drones Make Enemies,” sign.
    That is CodePink founder Medea Benjamin.
    She is incredibly wealthy…..by inheritance.
    She bankrolls the entire Code Pink agenda.
    When she wants a crowd somewhere she pays their airfare and room and board.

    @Budvarakbar: As always, well said!! When I look at the same pictures you do, I wonder why their mothers didn’t exercise their freedom of choice to abort them. Then again, maybe she did and we are looking at the result. Hard to tell!! Could be the suction device just got their brains!!

    Odd how there are no Obamahitler signs, no signs mentioning Obama at all. You know, the guy who authorized the drone hits?

    I’m sure they will be out with those signs soon right?
