The US Senate Intelligence Committee postponed the confirmation hearing for CIA director nominee John Brennan after demonstrators disturbed the proceedings.Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California), chairperson for the committee, ordered Thursday afternoon’s confirmation hearing to be halted after she stopped momentarily five times to order the removal of protesters.”The next time, we’re going to clear the chamber, and bring people back one by one,” Sen. Feinstein said, before ordering as much moments later. Shortly after, the hearing reconvened after the protesters were removed.At least one of the protesters was affiliated with Code Pink, an anti-war advocacy group that has been critical of Pres. Obama’s covert overseas drone war. Mr. Brennan, who currently serves as coun
terterrorism adviser under the president, will be sworn in as chief of the CIA pending the results of Thursday’s hearing.
