  •  "tough" questions, oh my! (8+ / 0-)

    Yes, there will be "tough" questions and earnest statements about national security and moral authority and on and on.

    End result?   Wyden will vote to confirm.  Brennan will take the office.  Assasination will continue to be official policy.  Obama will get the thrill of picking the targets.

    Drones will get cheaper.  Escalation will continue.

    A drone will strike an embassy or US nationals some place.

    Ratchet up the rationalizations.  Throw a few more rights and morals on the bonfire to "keep us safe".

    Persecute any whistleblower.  Increase secret, no-bid contracts for next generation drones.

    convene next confirmation hearing.   Ask "tough" questions.

    Rinse and repeat.
