Brennan's Confirmation Hearing Disrupted by Protesters

The confirmation hearing of President Barack Obama's choice to run the CIA, John Brennan, was disrupted on Thursday by protesters opposed to the U.S. drone attacks against Al-Qaeda terrorists.

The protesters heckled Brennan before police cleared the hall to restore order, AFP reported. One woman reportedly shouted, "This is a war criminal. He should not be confirmed!"
