CODEPINK Hosts Vigil for Innocent Drone Victims at Virginia Home of CIA Director Nominee John Brennan

On Tuesday, January 15, 2013, human rights activists held a solemn candlelight vigil outside of John Brennan’s house in Herndon, Virginia in memory of the innocent victims of U.S. drone strikes around the world. Last week President Obama nominated Brennan, architect of the American killer drone program, to head the CIA. Brennan is responsible for the escalation of drone attacks under the Obama administration. He was also a Bush-era CIA official; in fact, he was chief of staff to Bush’s CIA director and then deputy director of the CIA at a time when the CIA was running a kidnapping and "rendition" program, which turned over detainees to foreign governments to be tortured.
