Does John Brennan Know Too Much for Obama to Fire Him?
It's difficult to cross man with details on every secret drone strike you've authorized—especially the legally dubious ones.
Conor Friedersdorf Aug 1 2014, 6:00 AM ET

When John Brennan assured the country that the CIA hadn't improperly monitored the Senate team that compiled a report on Bush-era torture, he fed us false information. That much is clear from Thursday's news that "the C.I.A. secretly monitored a congressional committee charged with supervising its activities." Either the CIA director was lying or he was unaware of grave missteps at the agency he leads. There are already calls for his resignation or firing from Senator Mark Udall, Trevor Timm, Dan Froomkin, and Andrew Sullivan, plus a New York Times editorial airing his ouster as a possibility.

I don't think it's that he knows to much it's just that he doesn't want to fire a fellow Muslim.

I don't know. You know that some people keep detailed records - just in case.

I do think he knows too much.  Who would you pick to gather intelligence if you wanted to overthrow the country.  The head of the CIA would be my choice.  I think he is the only one who has access to all the information and plans at this point and losing him would be catastrophic to Obama's plans.
