Brennan takes oath on draft Constitution—without Bill of Rights

At least the CIA is being up front about the problems involved in being held up by legal issues.

Hours after CIA Director John Brennan took the oath of office—behind closed doors, far away from the press, perhaps befitting his status as America's top spy—the White House took pains to emphasize the symbolism of the ceremony.

“Director Brennan was sworn in with his hand on an original draft of the Constitution that had George Washington's personal handwriting and annotations on it, dating from 1787.”

The Bill of Rights, which did not officially go into effect until December 1791 after ratification by states.

That means: No freedom of speech and of the press, no right to bear arms, no Fourth Amendment ban on “unreasonable searches and seizures,” and no right to a jury trial.

How ... symbolic?

He was in an undisclosed location, and had his fingers crossed anyway.

I'm more disturbed he didn't use the Bible rather than not using the bill of rights

At least he swore on something that actually is germane to the rule of law.

Swearing an oath of office on the bible is the same thing as swearing it on a copy of The Hobbit, or 50 Shades of Grey, or even a Superman comic book. It's all just literature, albeit religious literature, in the case of the bible.

Inroads into, and shortcuts around our basic laws safeguarding individual rights, are too easily accepted - due to indifference, or callousness, or to too quick yielding to the clamor of those who seek to glorify an end, no matter what the means.

The Bill Of Rights is only the most important part of the constitution, no authoritarian government or dictatorship would ever respect such a document.

Congress finally looking into Brennan and Clapper involvement in FISAgate.

Sebastian Gorka was on Hannity, and just stated that John Brennan in 1976 voted for Gus Hall, Communist Party candidate for U.S. President. Hannity said he'd never heard that. James Kallstrom, also on the show, confirmed it's true.

Unbelievable. No, believable.
