Brennen had a walk in the park compared to whats coming for Treasury Sec nominee Jack Lew. Lew received a million $ bonus after Citi Group got bailed out (and losing over $500 million for Citi's Alternative Investment division) and had invested money in the Cayman Islands!!!!

You can't make this stuff up!!!!

In college a prof told my class that fascism does not come from the political right, it always comes from the poltiical left who base their views on being the ultimate force to determine what is right for all of us. Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Chavez, Castro, all started as left wingers but once in power decided that only they could know what was right for people and that personal freedom was a threat to the State. The things that have occurred under the Obama rule are serious red flags. He makes war without Congress (Libya/Syria), he issues Executive Orders like a banana republic dictator to avoid having to justify his actions and he has become fascinatged with military power, most notably his new strike force of 9,000 US soldiers to intervene in African countries. Who asked for or authorized that? He now turns his attention on Americans, who cannot be trusted to own a gun and must be surveilled so they cannot be a danger to the State. The world's dictators started this same way.

topofthehill, Maybe some hackers will send your identity to the CIA and they will "drone" you!

Did you read the one about the federal reserve getting "hacked" the other day? If they can't protect information, can you?

Drone program is fantastic. As for attacking so called "Americans" who have gone over to the enemy...easy decision...traitors..."kill them." End of story.

This guy creeps me out, but then again maybe we shouldn't have a "play nice happy face" in charge of the CIA.

Middle East cultures as well as politicos in Red Square have genuine regard for unsmiling menaces. Maybe the gruff exterior serves the interests of America's security.
