Changes to the National Security Council

06 August 2017

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster listens during a daily briefing at the James Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House July 31, 2017 in Washington, DC. "I was upset while I was there in seeing how empowered Obama holdovers under McMaster were to essentially perpetuate Obama-era policies", another former official told TheDCNF.

POTUS, along with national security adviser H.R. McMaster and chief strategist Steve Bannon, are trying to figure out what exactly we should be doing in Afghanistan, where the USA has been at war for 16 years, but McMaster is having some trouble getting his ideas through because Trump - the commander-in-chief of the USA military - has the attention span of a first grader. "A newly emboldened H.R. McMaster, purging Bannonites with the backing of John Kelly (and the president), could hasten his exit". Breitbart attacks quoting "administration officials" alleged McMaster opposed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appearing alongside Trump at the president's recent visit to the Western Wall. But McMaster has faced accusations he is anti-Israel due to his support of the Iran nuclear deal and reports that he refers to Israel as "the occupying power".

"I have great respect for my people". "If they let themselves be distracted, they're not going to have time to do their day jobs", he told BuzzFeed News. Numerous attacks came from online outlets popular with the far right, including Breitbart, which until last August was run by White House adviser Stephen Bannon. McMaster has sought to convince Trump on a plan that would modestly increase troops levels, but Trump has remained resistant.

Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the senior director for intelligence on the National Security Council who provided information to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) about "unmasking" during the Barack Obama administration, was ousted today.

"This memo McMaster sent to Rice makes it so that she doesn't have to prove a continuing "need-to-know" to have access to classified information and in effect is a White House pardon of Susan Rice and could be used by other Obama officials who conducted targeted unmasking of the campaign as a defense", said a senior West Wing official, who was shown the document by Circa and verified its authenticity.

McMaster has been on a firing spree of Bannon loyalists.

A senior administration official said McMaster ran the decision to remove Cohen-Watnick by Kelly before announcing it internally this week, and Kelly did not object.

Guest host Dana Perino asked if McMaster is on thin ice at the White House.

"For some time, Steve Bannon has been considering leaving the White House".

McMaster, for example, dismissed top Middle East adviser Derek Harvey, last week amid reports that Harvey'd become too close to Trump's chief strategist, Stephen Bannon - a bitter rival of McMaster. Trump's military advisers reportedly offered to arrange a meeting between the president and the general in order to help ease concerns, but Trump did not meet him.

"I think you're already starting to see a different flow".
