Not quite sure how he thinks we are going to re-tool our military, while reducing debt, the two usually don't go hand in hand. Dichotomy shown below;

James Woolsey, a former national security official under Republican and Democratic administrations who has been a fierce critic of President Barack Obama, said in a statement he will advise Trump "on the urgent need to reinvest in and modernize our military in order to confront the challenges of the 21st century."

"Mr. Trump's commitment to reversing the harmful defense budget cuts signed into law by the current administration, while acknowledging the need for debt reduction, is an essential step toward reinstating the United States' primacy in the conventional and digital battlespace,"

I am also not sure what he means when he says that Trump will reinstate the United States primacy, as if we ever lost it?! With contradicitions like that, maybe he's a blessing to the Clinton campaign.

One reason Woolsey said he supports Trump is that the Republican presidential nominee "seems willing to keep a secret and not to blab everything to the public and our opponents."


What's Trump not telling us?

Woolsey will fit well into the Trump camp. He's big in conspiracy theories too.

Dunno, but he's on record as saying Iraq was involved with 9/11, the earlier Towers bombing in 1993, and the OK Fed Bldg bombing.

Trump on conspiracy theories? Ooh, that's an easy one.
Where to begin...

Obama birther
Obama's a muslim
Hilary founded ISIS
Vaccines cause autism
Obama will take away your guns
Climate change is a hoax invented by the Chinese
...just for starters. We could list enough to make this post as long as the one with the XTCD comic about global warming. Or longer.

So the guy who was for the Iraq War before he was against it decides to pick a NeoCon warhawk and noted cheerleader for the Iraq War to advise him on defense?

"It's not just ISIS that Obama administration hasn't taken seriously...it's whole notion of a chunk of Islamic world being at war with us.

...'narrative fight' with ISIS? 'Wad up pieces of paper with a narrative on them and throw them at the terrorists?"
