White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster hasn’t exactly been the greatest ally of President Trump, and the stunning details about his past work are a good indication as to why.
McMaster, who’s been purging the White House of Trump loyalists, has reportedly been “opposed to everything” the President wants to do, and now we know why – he worked for a Soros-funded think tank that was instrumental in crafting the narrative to the public about the Iran nuclear deal.
Breitbart News reports:
White House National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster served at a UK-based think tank financed by a controversial, George Soros-funded group identified by the Obama White House as central in helping to sell the Iran nuclear deal to the public and news media.
From September 2006 to February 2017, McMaster is listed as a member of International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), where he served as consulting senior fellow. The IISS describes itself as a “world-leading authority on global security, political risk and military conflict.”
The IISS has been supportive of the Obama administration-brokered 2015 nuclear accord with Iran, and the group has repeatedly hit back against charges that Tehran has violated the agreement.
McMaster himself has been accused of purging the National Security Council of hardliners on Iran, and he is seen as a leading proponent of the Iran nuclear accord within the Trump administration. He has reportedly urged the White House to recertify Iran’s compliance with the Iran nuclear deal.
IISS’s website contains a list of groups, corporations and government entities that provide funding to the think tank, including during the period of McMaster’s work there. Curiously missing from the page of donors, however, is the controversial Ploughshares Fund, a grantmaking group identified last year by the Obama White House as central in helping to market the Iran nuclear deal to the news media.
An archived version of IISS’s donors page lists Ploughshares as a donor.
People have been suspicious of McMaster for some time, and it turns out their fears are justified. Anyone who’s worked with or for anything funded by Soros cannot be trusted, period.
