    With Brennan, Hagel and Kerry, it’s the march of the radicals.

    Dark days are ahead for America.

    Let’s be perfectly clear….Obama didn’t choose Brennan, he was TOLD to choose Brennan.

    Is it just me or does Brennan look a little like Peter Creedy from V for Vendetta? I wonder if he has the same persona as the Creedy character.

    Sen Graham wants answers from Brennan on Libya? Even though he’s 4 mos late.(and we know why that is). Brennan in case you forgot has more culpability on Benghazi than UN ambassador Rice. The 79 GOP Congress people aren’t calling for him not to be confirmed to a higher position as they did a certain female . McCain isn’t saying he’s incompetent as he did a certain female. Ayotte and Collins don’t have problems with the more accountable Brennan on Libya, than they did a certain female. Could it be the more accountable Brennan is —–. No I must be wrong,there’s no double standard, right?
