CIA director’s UPenn talk interupted by anti-drone protesters

Brennan reportedly responded to the issues brought up by the protesters.

“I know there are a lot of reports about hundreds upon thousands of innocents who have been killed as a result of these strikes,” Brennan said, according to the DP. “I can tell you with great confidence that those are exceptionally exaggerated reports… the number of civilians killed relative to the number of terrorists killed is a very small portion.”

Brennan’s talk continued despite a second interruption by two more protesters, who were also escorted out. During the question and answer portion of the talk, a third group of two protesters began chanting, after which point Margolies ended the event.

Some members of UPenn SDS (Students for a Democratic Society), along with other Philly activists, continued the protest outside after the talk ended.
