Brennan answers carefully at Senate hearing

WASHINGTON (CNN) —John Brennan told his Senate confirmation hearing on Thursday that he was aware of the CIA's enhanced interrogation techniques while serving as a top official at the agency but did nothing to stop them because he had no oversight role.

"I did not take steps to stop the CIA use of those techniques," said Brennan, who was nominated by President Barack Obama to lead the spy agency after the resignation of former Gen. David Petraeus over an extra-marital affair.
