Donald Trump Names HR McMaster As National Security Advisor

An esoteric, but legally significant, point is being raised by the Senate Armed Services Committee regarding Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster's appointment as national security adviser.

General McMaster's fame grew after his 1997 book Dereliction of Duty criticised the country's military and political leadership for poor leadership during the Vietnam War.

Trump called McMaster, a career Army officer and prominent expert on counterinsurgency warfare, a "man of tremendous talent and tremendous experience". 'However, if it is the president's desire that General McMaster serve as National Security Adviser while in his current grade of lieutenant general, the law requires that General McMaster would have to be reappointed by the president and reconfirmed by the Senate in that grade for his new position'.

McMaster shares the consensus view among the US national security establishment that Russian Federation is a threat and an antagonist to the United States, while the man whom McMaster is replacing, retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, appeared to view it more as a potential geopolitical partner.

Months after featuring in Time Magazine's list, General McMaster was officially promoted to Lieutenant General. President Trump's first choice - retired Vice Adm. Robert Harward - turned down the offer.

Heady stuff indeed. But there's more: McMaster also is a student of the responsibility to think and speak independently on issues of national security. McMaster's approach won praise during the 2007 surge in Baghdad.

This was the second time Bolton, an outspoken conservative skeptic of worldwide organizations and treaties, has been considered and rejected for a high-level post in Trump's administration.

He made no specific mention of Caslen, but added that "we'll be talking to some of the other generals that I've met".

The role has varied from administration to administration, but the adviser attends National Security Council meetings along with the heads of the State Department, the Department of Defence and key security agencies.
