PERSONNEL IS POLICY: Meet Jeb Bush’s National Security Adviser. “They may have been mocked at the time, but the views Mitt Romney articulated on the campaign trail in 2012 about foreign affairs are now considered not just clear-sighted but clairvoyant. He said that the U.S. withdrawal from Iraq was a mistake; that Vladimir Putin was a major threat; and that radical Islam was on the ascent. Romney detailed many of these ideas in a wide-ranging address on foreign policy at the Virginia Military Institute. That speech was crafted in part by John Noonan, who was recently tapped to be Jeb Bush’s national-security adviser.” Editing tip: You mean “prescient,” not “clairvoyant,” which basically (“clair” + “voyant”) just means clear-sighted. But yeah.
