Ok, now that those drone-hating protesters have been cleared from the room, the committee can get on with the business of pretending to ask Brennan tough questions about his role as the chief architect of the current drone regime that is so beloved by Washington lawmakers and the Beltway foreign policy community in general.
Brennan is resuming his opening remarks after he was forced to stop as five protesters interrupted one by one. The delay lasted only a few minutes. Feinstein ordered the room cleared. Brennan is currently reminiscing about his years in the American intelligence community.
Brennan cites this experience as the reason why he's the man to lead the CIA.
