    or almost nothing, should be acceptable to progressives. So much sleaze behind the scenes.

    That said, Brennan has been wanting to lift the veil from over the drone strikes, which is a silver lining.

    And he actually was against torture, and actually challenged some during the Bush administration, which is why he was denied a due promotion and left in 2005.

    Pretty much nothing about the CIA sounds good. It needs so much daylight shone on it. Brennan is a culture of that system, but has shown willingness to shine that light. Not near enough, but I am an incrementalist and will groan and accept.
