Lawmakers to get drone report before CIA hearing

Published: 02.07.13, 07:46 / Israel News

President Barack Obama's choice to head the CIA faces a Senate Intelligence Committee confirmation hearing just hours after lawmakers are expected to receive a classified report providing the rationale for drone strikes targeting Americans working with al-Qaeda overseas.

 

John Brennan, the White House counterterrorism chief and Obama's nominee to run the nation's spy agency, helped manage the deadly drone program. The confirmation hearing Thursday sets the stage for a public airing of some of the most controversial programs in the covert war on al-Qaeda, from the deadly drone strikes to the CIA's use of interrogation techniques like waterboarding during President George W. Bush's administration. (AP)
