Jared Kushner taking over the NSC; flagship building is "666"

Reader comment on item: Will Trump Turn Against Israel?

Submitted by Michael S, Apr 13, 2017 at 17:47

"The daughter and the son-in-law? I don't know what their views are."

Dr. Pipes, you may not know young Jared Kushner's views; but his influence is incredible, and growing by the day:

"Sources who spoke to the Free Beacon described wide-ranging frustration at the NSC over Kushner's influence over some of the most important foreign policy portfolios, such as Iraq, Israel, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and China, among others. Senior NSC staff are finding their hands tied when it comes to performing even perfunctory duties, such as talking points and statements on high profile issues that must go through Kushner for approval. Sources who spoke to the Free Beacon described this level of involvement as kneecapping the NSC and contributing to its difficulties formulating policy.

""Kushner is meddling in a lot of things," according to one NSC official who spoke to the Free Beacon only on background. "Such direct control of foreign policy from the West Wing has never happened before. It just creates a lot of drama. People just don't know how to deal with it. We're respectful of his position, but it's confusing the policymaking process.""

"666" is the name of the building, not its address.
