New York Times, April 5, 2017: Bannon’s Out. But Did H.R. McMaster Win?
While this might appear to be a win for McMasters and common sense, the NYT article suggests that "President Trump’s national security team remains as weak and dysfunctional as ever."
Mr. Cohen-Watnick, the 30 year senior director for intelligence programs and old holdover from Michael Flynn’s national security adviser role is still in place despite McMasters attempt to get rid of him. Recall that when McMasters tried to push him out as unqualified, he complained to Bannon and Jared Kushner, who prevailed on Mr. Trump to have him reinstated.
Cohen-Watnick position has previously been held by senior career C.I.A. officers in the Obama administration and other presidents. He has no qualifications and is not respected by others.
So maybe it's Jared Kushner who has the last word...again. Why does his name keep coming up every where?
