President Trump’s new choice for National Security Adviser is Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster. McMaster is best known for his 1997 book Dereliction of Duty: Johnson, McNamara, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Lies That Led to Vietnam, an examination into the disastrous Vietnam policies of Lyndon Johnson and Robert McNamara. In the book, McMaster not only attacks President Johnson, he also places blame on military leaders who refused to push back against abject leadership in the White House.
I have that book. I like him already.
