    The U.S. Senate voted Thursday to confirm John Brennan, as the new Director of the CIA, though it is a day later than expected. The vote was 63 to 34.

    The vote, long delayed by critics on both sides of the political aisle, demanding to know if the administration has the authority to use armed drones to strike U.S. citizens on U.S. soil. The answer from the White House is no.

    (Paul) “And I think that Americans should see this battle that we’ve had in the last 24 hours as something that’s good for the country.”

    Kentucky Republican Rand Paul a day after leading a near 13 hour filibuster to block the vote. A bipartisan majority confirming Brennan to become the next CIA chief.
