Jeb Bush Advisers: Iran Deal is ‘Downright Reckless’
Guardian – When in February Jeb Bush announced 21 foreign policy advisers, a list that included 17 people from his brother George W Bush’s team, critics scoffed. Why, they reasoned, would voters invite the architects of the Iraq war to resume control of US foreign policy?
The premise underlying that criticism – that the Iraq war was a mistake – is not shared by Jeb Bush’s advisers. As former George W Bush deputy national security adviser and current Jeb Bush adviser Meghan O’Sullivan wrote in a 2013 editorial: “Given the several still-undetermined variables and the wide variety of plausible outcomes, it is too early to bring final judgment on American efforts in Iraq even 10 years on.”
