There is obviously a lot of opposition to what is perceived to be a number of Trump administration policies. There’s no way to overcome those leaks without getting firm control of all the bureaucracies in question.
Given that Trump has been president less than one month, prudence surely dictates that we proceed not hysterically, but cautiously, in evaluating the new White House.
The new president’s reported disdain for his predecessor’s arms deal is an encouraging sign.
This threat is rising and for eight years under Obama, with respect to North Korea, the Obama policy was what they called “strategic patience,” which was a synonym for doing nothing.
As long as Obama remained president, Iran’s nuclear-weapons and ballistic-missile programs had little to fear. The advent of Trump’s White House, however, has changed all that.
