U.S. Senator Mike Enzi spoke out Thursday against the nomination of John Brennan as CIA Director, citing issues with Brennan’s views on drones and a lack of transparency.

Though the Senate confirmed Brennan with a vote of 63 to 34, Enzi says he took issue with a poor response from the Obama administration about whether American citizens, while on American soil, could be the target of a drone strike.

Enzi praised Senator Rand Paul for his 12-hour filibuster during the confirmation of Brennan and said it was because of his courage to stand up to the administration and get an answer about drones on American soil. To view a video of Enzi's full speech, visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A....
