McMaster shows clout in Trump's first crisis--(Is that a good thing?)
Trump security advisor H.R. McMaster is too close to the GOP establishment war hawks for my liking. McMasters was even praised by conserative idiot Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard.What does that say?
President Trump launched the first major military strike of his presidency after heavy consultation with his national security adviser, H.R. McMaster.
The cruise missile attack on Syria capped off a week in which McMaster appeared to consolidate his power by ousting chief White House counselor Stephen Bannon from the National Security Council, though the balance of power inside the Trump administration remains fluid.
The Army lieutenant general showed a steady hand turning Trump's rhetoric Syria into action, something the president’s team has struggled to accomplish on other fronts.
