Letter: Right Votes on John Brennan

To the Editor:

Vermonters owe a debt of gratitude to our senators, Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders, for voting against the confirmation of John Brennan as head of the CIA. As Sanders wrote, “With regard to the use of drones and other methods employed by the Central Intelligence Agency, I am not convinced that Mr. Brennan is adequately sensitive to the important balancing act required to make protecting our civil liberties an integral part of ensuring our national security.”
