Inhofe Opposes Brennan Nom to Director of CIA

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) made the following statement today after opposing the confirmation of John Brennan to be Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Brennan was confirmed by a vote of 63-34.

"Despite being a long-serving veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency, I could not support John Brennan's nomination today as the next director of the CIA," said Inhofe. "I continue to have concerns over Mr. Brennan's support of trying in our federal courts terror suspects captured on the battlefield. These are enemy combatants, and we have established competent military tribunals to try these individuals in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Furthermore, he has advocated for closing this detention facility, a move that would transfer dangerous enemy combatants and terrorists to American prisons right in our backyards."
