Trump Confirms The Pentagon & The CIA Are In Charge Of Foreign Policy

Authored by Jacob Hornberger via The Future of Freedom Foundation,

President Trump has announced that he is ordering a partial withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan and Iraq during the waning days of his administration.

Why only partial? And why now in the waning days of his presidency? After all, when Trump campaigned in 2016. his expressed aim was to bring all the troops home from those two countries. He repeatedly vowed to bring an end to Americaís ďforever wars.Ē

There is a simple explanation for Trumpís failure, one that unfortunately so many Americans are loathe to consider: Itís not the president who is in charge of foreign policy. Instead it is the Pentagon and the CIA that are in charge.

Trump had four years to bring home those troops. Clearly he wanted to. The reason he didnít - the reason he still canít - is because the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the CIA wonít let him.

Longtime readers of my blog know that I have periodically referenced a book titled National Security and Double Government by Michael J. Glennon, who is a professor of law at Tufts University and served as counsel to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He knows what he is talking about. I highly recommend his book.

Glennonís thesis is a simple one:

The real power of the federal government lies with the national-security establishment - namely the Pentagon, the CIA, and the NSA.

They permit the president, the Congress, and the Supreme Court to maintain the veneer of power.

That veneer is unimportant to the Pentagon, the CIA, and the NSA.

Whatís important to them is who holds the power, not who appears to hold the power.

Trumpís inability to bring the troops home from Afghanistan and Iraq provides confirmation of Glennonís thesis. Trump wanted to bring them home. He vowed to bring them home. He had four years to bring them home. He was unable to do so. The Pentagon and the CIA simply would not permit it.

In his Farewell Address in 1961, President Eisenhower warned about the danger to Americaís democratic processes from what he called the ďmilitary-industrial complex.Ē

That was almost 60 years ago. As we have seen with President Trump, the national-security state has grown ever more powerful since then.
