How CIA Director John Brennan Became America's Spy And Obama's Conscience
“Other officials who were in Langley at the time gave a similar description of Brennan. ‘The ethos was what it was, and he wasn’t bucking it,’ said one official who worked with Brennan. ‘He has really walked the torture line pretty skillfully. Dance this way and then dance a bit in a different direction to avoid damage to himself.’”

Trump Is Not Trying to Silence Brennan - Bloomberg
“Drone strikes and torture are only part of Brennan’s problems with the left. He nearly lost his job in 2014 when the then-chair of the Senate select committee on Intelligence, Dianne Feinstein, accused him of spying on her staff as they completed research on a scathing report about the CIA’s black site program. Brennan survived, but until Trump’s election was wounded within the Democratic Party.”

Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???

John Brennan’s Dishonesty: A Long Record | National Review
“In truth, what I wrote about John Brennan’s lying was not predicated on any Trump tweet or conspiracy theory, or the theories of Jerome Corsi, but simply based on the factual record, which Radosh is apparently completely unaware of, or uninterested in.”

CIA Director John Brennan Pretends Foreign Cryptography Doesn't Exist
Here's the quote: "US companies dominate the international market as far as encryption technologies that are available through these various apps, and I think we will continue to dominate them," Brennan said.

"So although you are right that there's the theoretical ability of foreign companies to have those encryption capabilities available to others, I do believe that this country and its private sector are integral to addressing these issues."

Is he actually lying there? I suppose it is possible that he's simply that ignorant. Strong foreign cryptography hasn't been "theoretical" for decades. And earlier this year, I released a survey of foreign cryptography products, listing 546 non-theoretical products from 54 countries outside the US.

CIA Director John Brennan Pretends Foreign Cryptography Doesn't Exist
CIA director John Brennan told US senators they shouldn't worry about mandatory encryption backdoors hurting American businesses.

And that's because, according to Brennan, there's no one else for people to turn to: if they don't want to use US-based technology because it's been forced to use weakened cryptography, they'll be out of luck because non-American solutions are simply "theoretical."
