John Bolton was one of the architects of the Iraq invasion, widely considered one of the biggest foreign policy blunders of the era. Now Bolton replaces HR McMaster as Trump’s national security whisperer.
Maggie Haberman of the New York Times and David Gergen, advisor to presidents, were on CNN discussing the change, and the level of their somberness and worry added greatly to my own concerns. I hate to see someone like Bolton recycled.
I can hardly see how Mattis holds out among this collection of loonies and failed retreads. Rough times ahead.
