Obama to nominate John Brennan to head CIA

Published: 01.07.13, 14:35 / Israel News

President Barack Obama on Monday will nominate Chuck Hagel as his next defense secretary and counterterrorism adviser John Brennan to lead the Central Intelligence Agency, two potentially controversial picks for his second-term national security team.

 

Hagel, even before being nominated, has faced tough criticism from congressional Republicans who say the former Republican senator is anti-Israel and soft on Iran. And Brennan, a 25-year CIA veteran, withdrew from consideration for the spy agency's top job in 2008 amid questions about his connection to enhanced interrogation techniques during the George W. Bush administration. (AP)
