Why does John Brennan still have a job? I still wonder how this Cheney wanna-be even got one!

"John Brennan" by DonkeyHotey

Jim Hightower, one of the few things coming out of Texas in the last 6 decades worthwhile, writes, "Why does John Brennan still have a job?"

From his post:
So the guy who's in charge of America's deepest secrets had to trek up to Capitol Hill and apologize to Sen. Feinstein, admitting that he didn't know what was going on in the spy agency that's meant to spy on foreign terrorists, not US senate committees. Of course, Brennan might've known and was simply lying back in March when denying the CIA would do such a thing. After all, this is the same John Brennan who flagrantly lied in 2011, ridiculously claiming that dozens of US drone strikes had not caused "a single collateral death." So who in the world would trust anything Brennan says?
Well, Barack Obama would. After the Feinstein fiasco, the President expressed full confidence in the Liar of Langley – the town outside of Washington where the CIA is headquartered. After all, said Obama, Brennan did man-up and apologize to the Chairlady. That's sweet, but she's hardly the only one offended by the CIA's arrogant, autocratic overreach. How about us – the people who pay the tab for Brennan's out-of-control operatives?

I can go off on the hypocrisy of a Senate that is only "now" taking offense at this war criminal's behavior - and only because he had the audacity to spy on the Senate.  Who give's a dying rat's ass that he stood by Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al, in their abuse of everything sacrosanct by sanctifying torture and slaughter for bloody oil and hubris?

Or his channeling of Curtis LeMay ("There are no innocent civilians." U.S. General, Curtis LeMay, 1945)
 in an unholy, single man cheerleading squad for the use of drones for everything from murder of American citizens (who give's a crap about the Constitution and the idea of "due process") to..well, mass murder of innocents on the ground in foreign lands - more unjustified attacks on sovereign nations.

So why was he even confirmed to be the head of America's favorite Spook agency?

And why the hell was he even considered for anything other than fitting for an orange jumpsuit and a suite the ICC Detention Centre in Scheveningen?

Especially by the current self proclaiming "transparent and accountable" president ,who refused to even look at the crimes against humanity committed in OUR name by him and his predecessor and his predecessor and his predecessor and his predecessor?

Oh, right - we can do better; we can be better - we must move forward and not look behind...

That is what the talking point has been since Obama was elected in 2008 - When he forgot all of his promises of transparency, accountability and "habeas corpus" rights, and that pesky little torture crap he stood against but now, well, not so much.

John "Little Cheney" Brennan lied to Congress, lied to the SSCI and lied to the people - why is it that he sits in posh offices making decisions that threaten the peace and the people of the planet?
