|John Brennan, President Obama's pick to head the CIA, faces a frustrated Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, where he will be grilled on the Obama administration's increased use of drones and the harsh interrogations that took place during the Bush administration. Brennan was a top aide to former CIA director George Tenet during the time just after the 9/11 attacks when harsh interrogation techniques, such as waterboarding, were being used. He has since said he opposed the program. In addition to this administration's secret drone program and Brennan's previous record on the Bush administration's torture program, Brennan is likely to be questioned on the future of cybersecurity. According to recent reports, Brennan has played a major role in boosting the U.S. arsenal in protecting the country from cyberattacks.|
