President Trump “quits” John Bolton, his third National Security Adviser, over “strong disagreements”. Why does the President hire people who disagree with him and then fire them because they don’t agree with him? John Bolton’s ideology and reputation preceded him like a brass band, but a president who wants to extract us from foreign military engagements hired a well-known “hawk”.
Former Trump National Security Advisor Lt. Gen H.R. McMaster says America’s Afghanistan “war weariness” narrative is factually wrong, short-sighted and dangerous to our national security and that of our allies. He defends “the long war” as an “insurance policy” against a caliphate.
