Donald Trump is under assault from all quarters. Intelligence community leaders. The left. The Islamists. The media. The establishment Republicans. They are piling on with mutually reinforcing narratives accusing his new administration of selling out to the Russians, untrustworthiness, incompetence and dysfunctionality.
Having taken out National Security Advisor Mike Flynn, such forces are now working hard to destroy others close to the President and, in due course, the Commander-in-Chief, himself.
We dodged a bullet yesterday when Admiral Bob Harward apparently demanded a free hand, as Gen. Flynn’s successor, to staff the National Security Council with even those openly hostile to Mr. Trump. Thank heavens, that didn’t fly.
Mr. Trump and America need as our National Security Advisor an individual of unquestioned integrity, competence, vision, loyalty and success in the worst of fire-fights. Heroic retired Lieutenant General William “Jerry” Boykin fits the bill.
