Today confirmation hearings began for John Brennan nominated by Obama for Director of the CIA. In the run up to the hearing, several articles have been leaked this week offering more details about the kill lists that Brennan created for the Obama Administration as well as details about torture and "extraordinary rendition" that Brennan defended. We look at how the administration, the courts and the Congress have viewed these activities.

Barack Obama's nominee for CIA director portrays himself as a moral force in a messy business

John Brennan's bunker is a soundproofed, windowless suite in the White House basement where, as one senator put it, Barack Obama's counter-terrorism chief "decides each day who he's going to execute".

Behind guarded doors, Brennan -- the "priestly figure" nominated by Obama to be the next director of the Central Intelligence Agency -- draws together the lists of suspected terrorists for assassination by drone in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. They are signed off by the president on what have become known darkly as "kill list Tuesdays".

It's an unprecedented role for a US president devised by an official who wields greater influence on White House security policy than more senior officials.

Brennan was at the forefront of moulding Obama the election candidate, who in 2008 denounced the CIA's hand in abductions and torture at secret foreign sites under the Bush administration, into Obama the president, who has overseen the rapid expansion of the CIA's legally questionable war by drone. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/...
