U.S. Senate confirms Brennan as new CIA director

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: The U.S. Senate on Thursday confirmed John Brennan as the Obama administration's next director of the Central Intelligence Agency. The Senate voted 63-34 in favor of Brennan, overcoming Republican Senator Rand Paul's attempt to slow the White House counter-terrorism advisor from becoming the next head of the CIA. The nomination became a vehicle for Republicans and some Democratic critics to pressure the White House to disclose sensitive government records. These included emails and documents related to targeted killings and the administration's response to the attack last year on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.
