I don't like this one bit.
Bannon is our guy and I trust him guiding our foreign policy a thousand times more than General McMaster.
From The New York Times:
WASHINGTON ó President Trump reshuffled his national security organization on Wednesday, removing his chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, from a top policy-making committee and restoring senior military and intelligence officials who had been downgraded when he first came into office.
General McMaster inherited an organizational scheme for the National Security Council that stirred protests because of Mr. Bannonís role. The original setup made Mr. Bannon, the former chairman of Breitbart News, a member of the principals committee that typically includes cabinet-level officials like the vice president, secretary of state and defense secretary. The original order also made the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the director of national intelligence only occasional participants as issues demanded.Foreign policy is political. This is pure gibberish.
...A senior White House official presented the move as a logical evolution, not a setback for Mr. Bannon. He had originally been put on the principals committee to keep an eye on Mr. Flynn and to "de-operationalize" the N.S.C. after the Obama administration, this official said on condition of anonymity to discuss internal dynamics. This official said that process had been completed.How is McMaster different from any other two-bit neocon? Playing ball with these hawks is not a winning strategy.
Bannon said in a statement to the Wall Street Journal [Archive.is link]:
"Susan Rice operationalized the NSC during the last administration. I was put on to ensure that it was de-operationalized. General McMaster has returned the NSC to its proper function."Regardless of the technicalities, it's a power shift away from our guy to a neocon days after this Syrian gas hoax which Trump and his UN ambassador Nikki Haley have blamed on Assad.
UPDATE: He's replacing him with fake-glasses Rick Perry!
