Next up: H.R. McMaster

Unlike Mr. Flynn, who served as a campaign adviser last year, General McMaster has no links to Mr. Trump and is not thought of as being as ideological as the man he will replace. A battle-tested veteran of both the Persian Gulf war and the second Iraq war, General McMaster is considered one of the military’s most independent-minded officers, sometimes at a cost to his own career.

H.R. McMaster Wiki

Herbert Raymond "H. R." McMaster (born July 24, 1962) is a Lieutenant General in the United States Army, author, and the 26th and current United States National Security Advisor. His current assignment is Director, Army Capabilities Integration Center and Deputy Commanding General, Futures, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command. His previous assignment was commander of the Maneuver Center of Excellence at Ft. Benning, Georgia. McMaster previously served as Director of Combined Joint Interagency Task Force-Shafafiyat (CJIATF-Shafafiyat) (Transparency) at ISAF (International Security Assistance Force) Headquarters in Kabul, Afghanistan. He is known for his roles in the Gulf War, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.

Not much on him. Looking forward to digging a little.

Should be a good choice in times of political turmoil, not a bad thing to have as many generals on board as possible. I am feeling a WIN>>>> here

I'm not completely sure.

The selection encouraged Republicans who admire General McMaster and waged a behind-the-scenes campaign to persuade Mr. Trump to select him. Key to the choice was Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, an Army veteran who once served under General McMaster and suggested him to the White House. A coterie of other national security conservatives, including a top aide to Senator John McCain of Arizona, also lobbied for him, and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who has worked with General McMaster, encouraged him to take the job.

Rather interesting.

The MSM question is:

Has he ever talked to any Russians on the phone?

I think he's a good choice even if he has.
