John Brennan hearing stopped as protesters shout down CIA nom – live

John Brennan briefs Kathleen Sebelius on H1N1 4-28-09

The chairman of a Senate committee recessed John Brennan's CIA confirmation hearing and cleared the room after protesters persistently interrupted the proceedings.

Police removed several protesters at the beginning of the hearing on Thursday. More began yelling after Brennan began testifying, and Intelligence Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein ordered the hearing recessed while the room was cleared of spectators by Capitol Police. The protesters were shouting objections to lethal U.S. drone strikes and harsh interrogation methods.

The hearing continued a few minutes later. Senate staff members and reporters were allowed to remain.
