    Why would anyone want a job that is being targeted for destruction by one's own peers?

    He declined because he wasn't going to be able to sack everyone and put in his own team. I can understand why you wouldn't want to include that in your discussion.

    In reality, of course, he declined because he realized that the Trump administration has become a Cyclopean cluster-fuck and an international embarrassment.

    But according to an individual familiar with Harward's thinking, the former Navy SEAL who served on the National Security Council under President George W. Bush turned down the Trump offer because he did not receive sufficient assurances about staffing and autonomy. Specifically, the source said Harward wanted commitments that the National Security Council would be fully in charge of security matters, not Trump's political advisers. And he wanted to be able to select his own staff.

    Trump's decision last month to place his top strategist and former Breitbart CEO Steve Bannon on the National Security Council was roundly criticized as a departure from tradition, and previous administrations have tried to keep the NSC as divorced from politics as possible.

    Gee, how awful of Harward to want a strictly professional and apolitical national security team.

    Kudos to Harward.

    He realized he wasn't going to be a good fit for the job under Trump's organization structure.



    Next.....?
