Vice admiral turns down national security job

Vice admiral turns down national security job

He's well respected by both Democrats and Republicans and would have brought some needed experience and sobriety to the White House.

Word is, Vice Admiral Robert Harward, a former Navy SEAL, is the leading contender for the job. Before taking over for Flynn, Kellogg was named chief of staff and executive secretary of the National Security Council, an important supporting role.

That put him at odds with Trump, who had told Flynn's deputy, K.T. McFarland, that she could stay. After the Washington Post reported Flynn discussed sanctions with Russian officials in December - and thus, while President Obama was still in office - the national security adviser faced backlash and subsequently resigned.

Harward is said to share Mattis' view of Iran as a primary security threat, though with less ideological fervor: he spent much of his youth in pre-revolutionary Iran, where his father, also a navy officer, was stationed.

Chaos - National security officials speaking to the New York Times said that Harward had strong reservations about "Trump's unpredictable style and the level of chaos that has engulfed his White House".

Officially, the retired military leader cited family obligations, but a Financial Times report suggested conditions at the increasingly troubled White House played an important role in Harward's thinking. McFarland is a former Fox News analyst. His rejection, leaves retired Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg as the continuing interim national security adviser while the search continues.

Toshiba remains committed to United Kingdom nuclear project for now
Stricter safety standards after the 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident in Japan added to the cost of plants in China and the U.S. Relegation would make it "tougher for the company to attract investors" and so make its troubled turnaround even more hard .

Former National Security Council staffers told the Huffington Post that Petraeus is due to meet with Trump this week at the White House.

The 60-year-old Harward, who retired from the military in 2013, is now working as an executive at Lockheed Martin, the weapons and aerospace company, where he focuses on the United Arab Emirates.

General Petraeus, a retired four-star general, resigned as Central Intelligence Agency director in 2012 and pleaded guilty to one misdemeanour charge of mishandling classified information relating to documents he had provided to his biographer, with whom he was having an affair.

"We're just making sure that when we pull the trigger and finally pick the person that we have the proper diversity of choice before the President then makes his decision", the official said.

President Donald Trump is once again searching for a national security adviser.
