U.S. Army Col. Derek Harvey was the key figure when it came to the Middle East. He was against the Iran Deal and the funding of Palestinian Authority terror. He called out Islamic Jihad. He tried to force out the Obama holdovers running our foreign policy, Frontpage Magazine reported.
McMaster has purged all of General Flynn’s appointees. Obama’s holdovers are now running the National Security Council.
Harvey was close to Steve Bannon and very much like General Flynn.
Bob Woodward described Harvey in his 2008 book The War Within:
“In the late 1980s, Harvey traveled throughout Iraq by taxicab—500 miles, village to village—interviewing locals, sleeping on mud floors with a shower curtain for a door. He [was] full of questions, intensely curious and entirely nonthreatening. After the 1991 Gulf War, when the CIA was predicting the inevitable fall of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, Harvey, then a major, insisted that Hussein would survive because members of the Sunni community knew their fortunes were tied to his. He was right. Months before the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Harvey wrote an intelligence paper declaring that al Qaeda and the Taliban leadership in Afghanistan posed a strategic threat to the United States.”
Harvey has been a voice against Islamic terrorism, something McMaster has been coy about.
Right now, McMaster is running a Jeb Bush style foreign policy.
