McMaster reportedly splits with Trump on ‘radical Islamic terror’
President Trump’s newly appointed national security adviser on Thursday reportedly held his first “all hands” staff meeting where he said labels like “radical Islamic terrorism” are not helpful because he said terrorists are “un-Islamic.”
The New York Times, citing people who attended the National Security Council meeting, reported that Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster was in his Army uniform at the time and it represents a break from the opinion of other senior advisers.
Peter R. Mansoor, a retired Army colonel who served with McMaster in Iraq during the 2007 surge of U.S. troops, said earlier that McMaster “absolutely does not view Islam as the enemy.”
JS: Unless Gen McMaster uses the term radical Islamic Terrorism we will not defeat terrorism. And by NOT using that term McMaster is no better than Barack Obama on Islamic terrorism.If this story is true McMaster should be fired before he starts.
