More on firings by new "National Security Advisor" McMaster

Further to the last post on H.R. McMaster, appointed as National Security Advisor to replace Mike Flynn.  McMaster has fired four people who were seemingly conservative and in tune with the president:
   Member of the National Security Council Rich Higgins
   Senior Director for the Middle East Derek Harvey
   NSC staffer Tera Dahl, a congressional aide to Michele Bachmann. 
   Ezra Cohen-Watnick, a senior director for intelligence on the National Security Council.

Higgins was a director for strategic planning at the NSC.  He had warned about the threat of Islamic terrorism, of Sharia law, of the Hijrah colonization by Islamic migrants, of the Muslim Brotherhood, and of its alliance with the left as strategic threats.  His memo warned that "the left is aligned with Islamist organizations at local, national, and international levels" and that “they operate in social media, television, the 24-hour news cycle in all media and are entrenched at the upper levels of the bureaucracies.”  He believed leftists, globalists, Islamists and “deep state” actors--Obama holdovers--are engaged in “political warfare” against Trump and undermining counterterrorism efforts.

In May Higgins sent his memo up the chain, and McMaster fired him.  He was only on the job two months before being fired.

Derek Harvey was a former Army colonel who had warned of Al Qaeda when most chose to ignore it. He had seen the Sunni insurgency rising when most chose to deny it.  It was hard to imagine anyone better qualified to serve as the president's top Middle East adviser at the National Security Council than a man who had been on the ground in Iraq and who had seen it all.

Just like in Iraq, Harvey began digging at the NSC. He came up with a list of Obama holdovers who were leaking to the press.  They should have been fired immediately, but McMaster refused to fire any of them.  Instead, McMaster fired Harvey.

Ezra Watnick-Cohen is the man who exposed the eavesdropping by Obama holdovers on the president's conversations.  He had provided proof of the Obama surveillance to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes.  McMaster fired him, replacing him with Linda Weissgold--the woman who helped draft the Benghazi "talking points" which falsely--deliberately--blamed the Islamic terrorist attack on a spontaneous protest over a video on the internet.

According to the media, the reason McMaster fired Watnick-Cohen was the latter's “anti-Muslim fervor” and “hardline views.” And there’s no room for anyone telling the truth about Islamic terrorism at McMaster’s NSC.
Cohen-Watnick believing Iran's mullahs had no intention of honoring the so-called "nuclear agreement" under which Obama and the Democrats claimed Iran agreed not to develop nuclear weapons for ten years.  However, the agreement did not provide any means for inspection by the U.S., and even IAEA inspections required 28 days notice.  

In return for this illusory deal, the Obama administration agreed to release over $100 billion in frozen Iranian bank accounts.

McMaster has fired anyone on the NSC who named Islamic terrorism as the problem, or opposed the Iran nuclear deal, or has warned about Obama holdovers undermining the new administration.  In fact one of McMaster’s first acts at the NSC was to ban any mention of “Obama holdovers.”
McMaster also released a report claiming former NSA Susan Rice did nothing wrong in demanding that U.S. wiretapping agencies reveal the names of various American citizens intercepted in phone calls ("unmasking requests").
McMaster is looking more and more like a liberal plant.
