John Brennan

The man President Obama picked to head the Central Intelligence Agency goes before Senators today to make his case for confirmation.

FOX News Radio's Mike Majchrowitz reports from the White House:

The White House stands firm behind the nomination of John Brennan to be Director of the CIA.

(Carney) "President believes that John Brennan is uniquely qualified as a 25 year veteran of intelligence work."

Press Secretary Jay Carney.

But the release of a Justice Department memo outlining the President's claimed authority to kill Americans abroad using drones has complicated Brennan's confirmation.
