Senate Intelligence Committee Roster: Who's On It?

Despite Brennan's role in shaping Obama's outrageously authoritarian drone program, don't be surprised if we don't see anything beyond some polite questioning about it from the cast of characters on the Senate Intelligence Committee. Unchecked executive power in the realm of foreign affairs has now become standard Beltway orthodoxy. The amount of power the Congress has ceded to the White House in foreign affairs since the September 11, 2001 attacks is simply astonishing, and Brennan's drone policy is a part of that.
