'Lies and Deceit' of CIA Chief John Brennan Exposed In New Documentary [WATCH]

“It’s time for CIA Director John Brennan to go!” That is the hard-hitting message of a new POGO petition to the White House where activists are calling upon President Barack Obama to hold CIA Director John Brennan accountable for lying to the American public.


Brave New Films has released a short film documenting how Brennan illegally read communications of Senate staff tasked with overseeing the agency’s use of torture and made false claims to the Department of Justice. 

Brennan also explicitly lied to Congress about drone strikes killing civilians, saying that there had been no civilian casualties only three months after 42 civilians died. His statements have been proven to be false through the media and confirmed by the Inspector General’s report.

“It's clear now that Mr. Brennan was either clueless about what was going on in his agency or he outright lied to the Senate about it. His belated, private apology and his referral of the matter to an internal CIA “accountability board” are not an adequate response,” the petition reads.

Consequently, anti-drone activists and civil rights groups have joined forces and have written to the White House, calling on President Obama to fire Brennan for obstructing the course of justice and illegally spying on the Senate Committee.

"John Brennan’s lies do more than just tarnish his name, his lies tarnish an entire agency which is steeped in secrecy. If the American people are to believe that these are the only fabrications he has made, we’re sadly mistaken. Brennan’s lies send the message that the CIA is an untouchable agency and not accountable to anyone. We remain concerned that Brennan will do whatever it takes to protect his best interest” the petitioners state on YouTube.

Those interested can sign the petition. Check out the short film on Brennan’s lies.
