Donald Trump’s national security adviser is anti-Islam, open to torture, and wants to jail Hillary Clinton

Three-star US Army general Michael Flynn has ruffled a lot of feathers since he was fired as head of the US Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014. He has led chants for Hillary Clinton to be “locked up,” dined with Russian president Vladimir Putin and been tacitly rebuked by the head of the joint chiefs of staff for his politicking.

Despite insisting earlier this year that he “could care less” about being offered a job by Donald Trump if the latter were to win the election, Flynn has been named national security adviser to the president-elect.

Flynn was initially rumored to be a candidate for the role of defense secretary under Trump, but that would have required senate approval and a congressional waiver (a former member of the military must be out of service for seven years before taking on a new government role; Flynn has been retired for just two). The national security advisor appointment puts Flynn in a position to influence Trump’s national security policies while side-stepping what could have been a bumpy approval process.

Wondering about his policy positions? Here are some quotes from Flynn himself.

Well, for one thing, ask anyone in Special Ops if torture really works (hint: It doesn't).

I've always thought the best person for the job is never the person who wants it most.

Dave T: Me too. Especially for members of the ISIS group, waterboarding should be a "privilege" compared to regular treatment they deserve. And... each one of these assholes should be summarily executed after thorough intensive interrogations are completed and officials are satisfied they have extracted the maximum amount of data they can retrieve. Be in known people, the days of pampering Islamic extremists and radicals who intend to kill and harm us, are over !
