The Afghanistan War was never supposed to be an endless imperial policing mission. At a time of resurgent great power rivalry, President Trump deserves to have an NSA who is a foreign policy realist.
The president should appoint a new national security advisor who shares his instincts: to get out of quagmires, to seek deals to reduce tensions, and to get our allies to take defense seriously.
The Trump administration ought not to concede one inch to those who wish to sideline the personnel and stifle the policies that would make its counterjihadist agenda a reality.
Jennifer Rubin then: ‘If not Bolton himself, someone very much like him would be ideal in the No. 2 spot at State.’
John Bolton not only shares the president’s views on many foreign policy issues, he has decades of experience in government, politics, and American leadership.
It’s somewhat ironic that this email was disclosed the same day the anti-Trump universe was spinning into the stratosphere over Michael Flynn’s resignation as President Trump’s national security advisor.
For a job that requires laser-sharp judgment, Michael Flynn seriously misjudges major world leaders like Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
