Not really a surprise that Brennan and the WH choose to do this. It's been hard or impossible to get an answer out of the Obama Administration on human rights of American citizens unless it's a social issue where votes can be minded from 'clueless uninformed or one issue voters'.
So was Brennan and the Admin clueless, stupid, or very smart in the choice?
'Very smart' meaning that Brennan doesn't intend to pay attention to the Bill of Rights.
Just think if this had been a Bush CIA appointee -- the media and the left would be going crazy -- but I expect it will be brushed under the rug and not covered.
Who knows ... maybe they will blame the goof on a unseen video playing on youtube.
