Trump Removes Kissinger From Defense Policy Board

Henry Kissinger

 Well, it is about 4 years too late but Trump is cleaning house.

CNN is reporting that several high profile members of the Defense Policy Board were removed on Wednesday by the Trump administration.

Members who were suddenly removed include former Secretaries of State Madeleine Albright and Henry Kissinger, former ranking member of the House Intelligence committee Jane Harman and former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, two officials said.

The Defense Policy Board is an outside advisory group of former high profile national security officials who "provide the Secretary of Defense and the Deputy Secretary of Defense, independent, informed advice and opinions concerning matters of defense policy in response to specific tasks from the Secretary of Defense, the Deputy Secretary of Defense," according to their website.

Reports also indicate that former Chief of Naval Operations, retired Adm. Gary Roughead, former chief operating officer at the Pentagon Rudy De Leon and former Bush deputy national security adviser J.D. Crouch II were removed.

The Kissinger removal appears most interesting in that he appeared to be close to Trump and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner.



  1. Why the hell wasn't Trump doing this in early 2017???

    1. One idea I've read set forth is that he had to let them get comfortable so they could not organize against him when the time is right. It seems that the time is now.

  2. Amazing how some of these evil bastards seem to live forever, and worse yet remain relevant while doing so.
