This is one very intelligent, articulate, highly-skilled woman. She was the campaign director for Donald Trump and he won the election. She is the first female in American history to occupy and successfully run such a position. Much is now being made of her very eloquent analysis of and objection to Mitt Romney’s candidacy for Secretary of State. The leftist media are isolating her and accusing her of trying to impose her own agenda on Mr. Trump’s cabinet choices. Here’s an example:
I’ve really tried to sit back and watch what happens, but I’m very wary of left-wingers who promote the likes of Mitt Romney and David Petraeus for cabinet positions, while excoriating the likes of Kellyanne Conway.
Meanwhile, writing at PJ Media, Andrew Bostom urged Mr. Trump to not appoint either Petraeus or James Mattis to the position of Secretary of Defense. Dr. Bostom lays out his evidence and thus closes his case against the two COINdinistas:
We have a moral obligation to oppose Sharia which is antithetical to the core beliefs for which hundreds of thousands of brave Americans have died, including, from 2001, till now, almost 7000 in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. There has never been a Sharia state in history that has not discriminated (often violently) against the non-Muslims (and Muslim women) under its suzerainty. Furthermore, such states have invariably taught (starting with Muslim children) the aggressive jihad ideology which leads to predatory jihad “razzias” on neighboring “infidels” — even when certain of those “infidels” happened to consider themselves Muslims, let alone if those infidels were clearly non-Muslims. That is the ultimate danger and geopolitical absurdity of COIN doctrine-rooted policies advocated by Generals Petraeus and Mattis, which ignore or whitewash basic Islamic doctrine and history, while however inadvertently, making or re-making these societies “safe for Sharia.”
Please, Mr. Trump, do not appoint COIN-dinistas Petraeus or Mattis to your cabinet.
I have great reservations about Mr. Romney’s qualifications, or lack of same, to head the Department of State. We shall see which candidate Mr. Trump decides to put into the position.
