Brennan Reshaping Anti-Terror Strategy

From a Washington Post series on “The Permanent War,” … a burly 25-year CIA veteran with a stern public demeanor, CIA veteran John Brennan is the principal architect of a policy that has transformed counterterrorism from a conventional fight centered in Afghanistan to a high-tech global effort to track down and eliminate perceived enemies one by one. What was once a disparate collection of tactics – drone strikes by the CIA and the military, overhead surveillance, deployment of small Special Forces ground units at far-flung bases, and distribution of military and economic aid to threatened governments – has become a White House-centered strategy with Brennan at its core.
