Trump's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad National Security Team

• http://ronpaulinstitute.org, by James George Jatra

Every time, his national security team – the people he appointed – sends him to "the tank" and hotboxes him with all the reasons he's wrong and why the US needs to "stay the course" in multiple wars and absurd deployments.

If the account of Bob Woodward is to be believed, Trump's flailing against his own appointees is nothing less than pathetic, that of a pitiable Gulliver roped down by Lilliputians of his own installation. As described by Tom Engelhardt: After all, from National Security Advisor John Bolton (the invasion of Iraq) and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (a longtime regime-change advocate) to CIA Director Gina Haspel (black sites and torture), Secretary of Defense James "Mad Dog" Mattis (former Marine general and CENTCOM commander), and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly (former Marine general and a commander in Iraq), those adolts [sic] and so many like them remain deeply implicated in the path the country took in those years of geopolitical dreaming.
