“The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff may . . . subject to the direction of the President, attend and participate in meetings of the National Security Council.” 50 USC § 3021(e).
The President has directed that Gen. Dunford not be a regular attendee. Instead, Steve Bannon will be a regular attendee.
As a regimental commander, Gen. Dunford used to give “fireside chats,” in which he would explain every night over Reg. Tac. II the lay of the land and the concept of operations. He knows his stuff.
Mr. President, please listen to Gen. Dunford. Have him at those meetings.
