Since Dick Cheney wasn’t available, Obama is picking the next best thing to run the CIA, John Brennan.
Here’s what some of the qualification checklist may have looked like.
Assassination czar ✔
Torture and rendition expert ✔
Accomplished liar ✔
CIA drug running experience ✔
CFR member ✔
Killer drone lover ✔
Illegal surveillance lover ✔
Miscellaneous psychopathic tendencies ✔ ✔ ✔ ✔
I’ve never understood the need to cloak the titles of government positions in Orwellian nonsense. Brennan’s title of counterterrorism adviser should actually have been something like ‘Head of US Terrorism.’ At least then we could have given the administration a ✔ for transparency.
