Scenes From John Brennan's Confirmation Hearing

February 7, 2013

John Brennan, President Obama's nominee to head the CIA, first faced protesters and then some tough questions during his Senate confirmation hearing on Thursday.

Brennan's hearing was disruped early on by demonstrators from the group Code Pink protesting Brennan's role in overseeing the classified drone program that targets terrorists, including U.S. citizens. 

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., ordered the chamber cleared of the public. After that, the fire he faced was from his questioners on the Intelligence panel.
