As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Trump Considering Sending McMaster to Afghanistan

Like, to work.

From the New York Times:

Mr. Trump, according to several administration officials, has been considering a shake-up that could include appointing Mike Pompeo, the C.I.A. director, to take over as national security adviser, while sending General McMaster to command forces in Afghanistan. Such a move could earn General McMaster a fourth star.

NBC News reported on Wednesday that the president recently suggested that Gen. John W. Nicholson Jr., the commander of American-led forces in Afghanistan, be fired. White House officials have said the president has yet to decide on any new moves.

McMaster keeps getting rid of all these people who were appointed to the National Security Council by Michael Flynn. What McMaster seems to be forgetting is that Trump liked Flynn, fired him as NSC chief reluctantly, and sometimes muses that he should have kept him. McMaster would do well to remember that the next time he thinks about firing an “antiglobalist.” Because Trump is an anti-globalist.

  1. The real McMaster’s true colors are beginning to be revealed. From Brietbart:

    “[McMaster] fires all of Trump’s loyalists and replaces them with Trump’s opponents, like Kris Bauman, an Israel hater and Hamas supporter who McMaster hired to work on the Israel-Palestinian desk. He allows anti-Israel, pro-Muslim Brotherhood, pro-Iran Obama people like Robert Malley to walk around the NSC and tell people what to do and think. He has left Ben (reporters know nothing about foreign policy and I lied to sell them the Iran deal) Rhodes’ and Valerie Jarrett’s people in place.”


    “Glick noted that “McMaster disagrees and actively undermines Trump’s agenda on just about every salient issue on his agenda,” including the Iran deal: “As for Iran, well, suffice it to say that McMaster supports the deal and refuses to publish the side deals Obama signed with the Iranians and then hid from the public.””

    Time to find out who McMaster really works for. It sure ain’t President Trump.
