Hours after news broke that Lockheed senior executive Robart Harward had rejected Trump’s offer to become the next National Security Advisor as he was Harward is “conflicted between the call of duty and the obvious dysfunctionality”, moments ago Trump tweeted that General Keith Kellogg – the acting national security advisor – “who I have known for a long time, is very much in play for NSA – as are three others.”
So as attention refocuses on Kellogg, here is a brief profile of the retired general, courtesy of the Guardian:
Kellogg, 72, was born in Ohio and served 36 years in the military: in the army in Vietnam, as a special forces officer in Cambodia, and during the first Iraq war as chief of staff for the 82nd Airborne Division. Kellogg rose to command the airborne division from 1997 to 1998 and later came to national prominence when he served as chief operating officer for Baghdad’s provisional government through 2004 – a year of mistakes by the transitional administration that haunted Iraq through the next decade of war.
