What's the best way to combat terrorism?  That's the key issue at a hearing for the President's choice to lead the CIA.

FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern has details from Capitol Hill in our ongoing series on national security:

Securing America.

When necessary, and as a last resort, Homeland Security Adviser John Brennan says drone strikes will take out terror operatives overseas, even if they're American.

(Brennan) "They really have a misunderstanding of what we do as a government and the care that we take."

Brennan answering critics and promising more transparency if confirmed to lead the spy agency.  As for enhanced interrogation methods:

(Brennan) "Waterboarding is reprehensible, and it's something that should not be done."

Brennan says he did not try to stop the practice while at the CIA during the last Administration, but privately raised objections.
