He also slips in BRENNAN as his Assistant to the POTUS for Natl Security, niiiiice. Yeah fake them out with Panetta,  then stick Brennan in an unconfirmable spot. Change eh? BWAA-HAAA-HAAA!!!!

From CNN:

Obama also named former CIA official John Brennan as White House homeland security adviser and deputy national security adviser for counterterrorism.

Brennan will face the task of reviewing whether the Homeland Security Council, created after 9/11, should be folded into the National Security Council or remain a separate entity in the White House.

Brennan will hold the title of assistant to the president, a sign that he will report directly to Obama.

If you don’t know the background on Brennan, go read Jeralyn and BTD at TL here
