Senate Confirms Brennan as CIA Director
The Senate confirmed John Brennan as the next director of the CIA on March 7, 2013.
He was confirmed by a 63-to-34 vote that crossed party lines.
Brennan was President Barack Obama's chief counter-terrorism adviser, and a top architect to the administration's drone program.
He replaces retired General David Petraeus and acting CIA Director Michael Morell.
Petraeus stepped down from his post in November amid revelations he had engaged in an extramarital affair with his biographer.
