    Excellent choice. He's a real hard ass and highly intelligent.

    He uses Windows computers. That alone deeply troubles me.

    Horrible pick. He's a ****ing nut job. Powell called him abusive with staff, against policy, bad management. Oh wait, he'll fit the Trump administration like a glove.

    Yeah the same guy that after going to the UN to tell us why we should invade a soveirgn nation by showing fake pictures, which incidentally is the same guy that insults virtually everyone in his private emails - including Bill Clinton - complains about "policy" and being rude to staff.
    Seriously, Powell is a joke and I don't say this lightly.

    Go read Flynn's twitter feed. Full of fake news, white supremacists and debunked memes. He's also awfully chummy with Putin and Erdogan. The **** show marches on.

    The fact that he has an open line with both Puting and Erdogan is reassuring. It means that he can reach to both Assad and el-Sisi, and make the US a diplomatic force rather than a war machine.
    (I am not saying that this will happen, I don't have a crystal ball.)

    He's on RT's payroll. Keep spinning.

    A speaking engagement is hardly "RT payroll".

    So are noted liberals like Thom Hartman, Ed Shultz, and Larry King.

    Now you have me worried.

    Get back to me when Hartman, Shultz or King are hired as national security advisors.

    Larry King is going penis pills commercials. A real threat to national security

    Didn't he get fired from his last job for not working well with others?

    He resigned, but I can see him not going along with the Obama administration. Heck, even Robert Gates couldn't stand it.

    Go look it up yourself. I'm out of the educating low information voters business.

    1) Forced out is way different than "Fired".
    2) rdowns makes up that he was "fired by obama", accuses me of making up **** (very insulting), while I said the only verifiable fact: he resigned. The non-verifiable fact is the reason. I can't prove or disprove that he was forced out, we're basing this on the usual anonymous sources. The only verifiable fact, again, is that he resigned.

    As expected.

    You can't be possibly serious.
    Other than the made up title, where does Flynn reveals that he was fired? That article quotes Flynn's disagreements with Obama, which we all know about since back then.

    And I am the one making up ****, right?

    Let's just use wikipedia: On April 30, 2014, Flynn announced his retirement effective later in 2014, about a year earlier than he had been scheduled to leave his position.

    That's written by Angry Patriot's staff. It's not Flynn. It's the introduction written by the journalist.
