[Ed. – This is getting into laugh-out-loud territory, if you’re prepared for feel-good guffaws. Conservatives who are defense hawks but not chronic interventionists can only applaud Gingrich, Luttwak, and Pillsbury.]
The Pentagon has added more supporters of President Donald Trump to the Defense Policy Board following the removal of several high-profile members last month.
“Today, the Department of Defense announced that it intends to appoint former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Newt Gingrich, Ambassador Thomas Carter, Dr. Edward Luttwak, Mr. Scott O’Grady, Mr. Thomas Stewart, the Honorable Randy Forbes, Senator Robert Smith and Ambassador Charles Glazer to the Defense Policy Board,” the Pentagon said in a statement.
Earlier this month, the Pentagon said it would name Hudson Institute China policy expert Michael Pillsbury to serve as the chair of the Defense Policy Board and former National Nuclear Security Administration Administrator Lisa Gordon-Hagerty as a member.
